We had a last bird walk with Miss Heidi this morning. We even managed to see a few birds after we broadcast far and wide we were coming (first grade birders). We noted a kestral box put up by Dr Fisher a few years ago, and wondered if it was now inhabited by one of the many Starlings we see around our neighborhood. After our walk, we headed back to look at the Mallard Nest in our back yard. The eggs are all gone now and it looks as if they may have been preyed upon BUT, Heidi showed us one of the eggshells looked as if it had been hatched out of. We all prefer that story line. It's hard work being a bird mama!
