Re: Nest in the kitchen cranny

That's interesting that you found a duck so close building a nest.  Are you collecting film cameras?  There are so many where I live that people are throwing away.  It's a shame.  I collect the wrist straps from them.  Last winter I bought a nearly mint condition 4 megapixel Olympus Camedia P&S digital camera for $5 (USD) at a recycle center, including a 128mb smart media card.  It still takes pretty good photos (but of course, not with nearly the image quality and features of the cameras today).

Today, I found a killdeer bird guarding its nest.  I didn't know it was a nest until I saw the eggs on the computer.  At first I couldn't understand why the bird let me get so close, and then try to fake injury so I would follow it like a predator.  But now I understand.

Here's the nest I found.  It was in an open area not too near vegetation which surprised me.
