The Homewood Duck> A Final Note

Upon my final inspection a couple of days ago, I found no more eggs. The nest is empty, only egg shells and a some feathers remain.

The Homewood Duck> Update> A Few Left

I did not waste any time…
After being away for a few days, one of my first thoughts this morning was to check on our famous duck and her eggs.

The Homewood Duck> Update> Incubating

I lost count of how many times my husband or I have checked on our duck and her eggs during past couple of weeks. We have stopped by at different times of day in the hope that mommy duck would be away so we can check on the eggs. No such luck!
We are often not curious about what immediately surrounds us. Even in an urban setting, we can find non-urban interests and beauty.

The Homewood Duck> Update> And Then There Were…

My husband and I had been checking during past few days to get an update on the status of the eggs but each time were met with not-so-friendly mom. Finally today I was able to get a look and my jaw dropped as I kept on counting: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
I took a couple of quick pictures and re-counted the eggs. I was wrong, there were 8 of them.

The Homewood Duck

As my husband puts down his water bottle on a large planter by the entrance to answer a text message; the duck suddenly rushes over and parks herself on the planter. And that’s when he notices three eggs resting safely under the evergreen bush in the planter…
Isn’t it amazing how mothers always find a way to care for their young- even at a crowded and noisy place as a hotel’s entrance.
