Kids are enthralled by a duck that is sitting in between a rose and a peony plant, in the front yard. It's right in front of our window, by the walking path, so they have the first row seats to everything that she is upto. She probably has some eggs laid and sits there all day long except for couple hours in the evening. We haven't been up close, but tried to peek through the window to see if we could spot any eggs(when mama duck takes off), but couldn't see anything except her feathers all around. It must be underneath them. Kids are now, not allowed to go out the front door as I'm worried they'll disturb her. Finally I got around to read up on ducks' egg laying habits online and it seems that it takes about 28 days for the eggs to hatch. That is a long time for the kids to be watching her and for us not to be able to go out the front door :)
