Owl Hatches a Wood Duckling Egg


This is my "feel good post of the week". A wood duck moved her last egg to another nesting box because it had been raided and only one egg had survived. Oddly enough, a mother owl sat on the duck egg for over a month and the hatched duckling thinks he's an owl. Read the charming story here with lots more photos. Am I forgiven now for being missing for almost a week?

Absolutely you are forgiven. And with a hearty "Welcome Back!"

Time and time again we underestimate animals---their survival skills, their nurturing abilities.

Happy Easter, Rosemary!

Fascinating story - animals know so much more that we do!

And...where have you been, young lady? I hope it wasn't serious...and that you are back and healthy...
