Floating Platforms update – another new nest

In early April, we observed a Mallard duck nest on one of the floating platforms. We mounted a motion activated camera and then did not disturb the nest site for three weeks.
We returned yesterday to see if conditions would allow swapping of the SD memory card in the camera.
We found no sign of the Mallard duck, but did find a very determined new tenant, a Canadian Goose.
The straw nest structure had been enhanced and mounded.

We did not swap the memory card yet, so the tale of what happened to the Mallard duck and eggs, will have to wait a while.
Hopefully the camera will have some information regarding the Mallard duck and her nesting effort.
