Guard duck

I went to check my messages in the Welcome Center last week and when I got close to the door, a duck flew at me. I screamed and ran. I'm glad no one was there to witness it.

Here's the door. Can you see the duck?

A duck laid eggs in the flower box to the left and lays there guarding it all day. Because that's what mama ducks do. She's become used to people going in and out, but if the door's locked and I fumble with my keys too long, she starts hissing. I'd be lying if I told you that my heart didn't start racing every time I approach the Welcome Center. My first encounter with her was a bit startling.

I hope I get to see them hatch!
