A Duck Lays Eggs in the Pot – Nature 54

We have an empty (no plants) pot on the patio, and planned to sow flower’s seed by next summer.

A couple day ago, we saw 3 eggs in the pot. Since the eggs bigger than chicken’s eggs size, then we guessed the eggs belong to a duck.

What species of a duck is?

One of neighbors suggested that the duck should be a Mallard, it is because one of eggs with “light blue” color. We don’t know whether true or not, we have no idea at all.

Anas platyrhynchos is a scientific name for the Mallard, and common duck species in the USA.

We think it is better to wait “mother duck” to come to see her eggs, then we know the species of duck.

Meanwhile, we keep watching the eggs from the raccoons. A lot of raccoon in our areas, they love eggs like crazy.

What do you think?
