12 ducklings left the East nest box at 8:20 this morning. There was one unhatched egg.
I had 3 cameras set up but I turned off the creek camera (before the ducklings jumped) because the other two were not streaming well, and that helped. Later I turned the creek camera back on and the duck family was visible and nearby – I hope you were able to watch them.
I’ll write a year-end report later. For now, all of the nest boxes are empty so the cameras are off … unless something happens. Sometimes another round of nesting occurs.
