DUMP NEST


HI- THIS IS A PIC OF ME IN CANOE FEW YEARS AGO - I HAVE A

HAND FULL OF EGGS FROM WHAT THEY CALL A **DUMP NEST **

I CANOED A 500 ACRE MARSH QUITE OFTEN - DUCKS UNLIMITED

DUCKS UNLIMITED HAD MADE LARGE ISLANDS FOR THE DUCKS TO

NEST ON AND THEY ALSO MAINTAINED THE WATER OF THE MARSH

WITH PUMPS - I FOUND A NUMBER OF THESE DUMP NEST USUALLY

AT INTERSECTIONS OF THE ISLANDS - RIGHT AT THE CORNER,S -

SOME NEST HAD AS MANY AS 30 EGGS IN THEM (DEAD EGGS)-

THEY DONT GO TO WASTE AS RAVENS- MINK- COTOYE FIND THEM

AND EAT THE EGGS - http://www.virtualmuseum.ca/Exhibitions/Birds/MSS/Anglais/plus/ponte.htm HERE IS THE MARSH I CANOE,D IN - http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/burges.html
