How did you find out that there was a third? Did she fly off later that morning?

she flew off after a barge passed, heading north, and a guy with his 2 kids in a john boat came around the north corner of the dock. they guy said he'd never seen a duck lay eggs in a pot before and said he'd stay clear of it from now on so not to scare her. nice of him!

Darin says that she flies off because she isnt done laying eggs. Once she is done she will not leave the nest. We may want to remove the gnome since she is going to need the room. That is... if she doesn't move it before we get to it. Darin has seen clutches up to 10 eggs!

up to ten eggs! you got to be kidding! Start taking donations to feed the kids! 10 mouths is alot to feed! For people who never wanted kids you sure are out doing yourselves in the animal adoption!
