Default Duck Cam

A duck names Daisy recently laid 8 eggs in the flower planter at the end of a neighbors dock. I have isolated a camera on her so with a little luck we can watch the eggs hatch and then watch the ducklings. It updates one a minute and there is also a video feed.

Ain't she a little late?

In Gilford, a mom went by this morning with 6 chicks, they were about 1/3 the mom's size.

Thanks for the feed!

The people from the State said this may be her second set this year or she could be immature.

Hi BI, Daisy is such a good little mom.
Can you tell us who named her?
How did you spot her there?
How did you get the cam so close to her? Did you have to sneak up while she was away from the nest?
Sorry for so many questions... Im just curious

With all the stress of life, it's nice to take a few moments and simply watch the wonder of mother nature. BI, thanks for providing us with this wonderful way to watch this sweet little duck as she incubates her eggs. I just love it!

Our neighbors named her. One day they saw one egg in the planter. The next day they noticed there were two eggs in the planter. They thought is was someone playing a joke on them, they had no idea the eggs were real. However the next day there were three eggs and a live duck.

I mounted the camera by approaching the planter very slowly and quietly. She never moved, but kept a close watch. A boat that is just inches away from her comes and goes regularly.

I hope this ends well, with 8 little ducklings following Daisy into the lake. But this is nature up close and real. It is what it is.

Thanks BI!!
Every morning I wake up worried that some critter raided her nest overnight.. Its a relief to open up the cam and see her still there every day.
Every once in a while I see her little beak open up... I assume she is quacking at someone or something.. Kinda surprised she doesnt just stay quiet and duck down to hide (excuse the pun) LOL

Make Way for Ducklings!

I would think she'd get hot in the sun and need to eat and drink. How often does she leave the eggs unattended?

Default What a great cam!

Thanks BI... I love this cam.

I do have an idea though, it would be cool to put up a "sticky poll" to "Name That Duckling" Someone smarter than me would have to actually set up the poll

Maybe we nominate a bunch of names for the babies and vote for the 8 most popular?

I'm thinking.. No Wake , GFBL , Flower Pot ..... you get the drift.

PS.. I think one of them needs to be named "Don" for all he puts up with to make this site happen.

Good idea ! One of them is bound to be .... less attractive .... than the rest. The ugly duckling could be named .... errr .... well .... hmmmmm .... you know I think I hear something burning on the stove ... be right back.

Before you can have a vote you need nominations. I was thinking these were the obvious answers

Huey, Dewey, Louie, April, May, June, Daffy, Scrooge, Gyro Gearloose, Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century.



Donald is already taken. That is the dad that hangs around sometimes.

so.. who is smart enough to post a poll. I know I'm not the one..

So far we have:
Huey, Dewey, Louie, April, May, June, Daffy, Scrooge, Gyro Gearloose, Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century ( From BI) (Love the cam.. weak on the names though) SIKQUACKER or SIKCLUCKER., from SIKSUKR .. Mee-N- Mac submitted.. (oh wait.. he didn't really submit a name) is he trying to duck out of this? Hummm... (sorry couldn't resist the duck reference)

I also think DON or Webmaster needs to be on the list.

Help... let's get tis poll going..

PS.. I still think GFBL and No Wake are good names.

No worries though. Do you see the power supply plugged in? It's in the lower left hand part of the screen. Its Daisy's cell phone charger.

Isn't Bear Islander considerate? He gave her a cell phone to call when she's going to deliver, I mean cracking, I mean hatching.

Hi Sam, I check out Daisy everyday.. I actually keep the site open on my desk top so I can see how she's doing. She leaves the nest once or twice a day for a half hour to an hour.. She's a good little mom.
Hopefully we will see some ducklings soon!!!

Daisy laid 8 eggs. 7 eggs hatched.

For a few days we have seen a Bald Eagle perched nearby. This morning there are 5 chicks and the eagle was perched on a branch above the nest.

Daisy seems to be staying near shore under overhanging branches. I assume that is her only protection from the eagle.

BI was updating us on the Duck Cam, Islander. His reply/thread is perfectly situated. BI did not embelish on the news, he simply reported it. Or is this an attempt to draw some idiot like me out, to defend a guy who needs no defense?

What part of Duck Cam do you not understand?

You'll have to spin your tale to BI.

It's his thread, wordage, and hence, placement.

Oh, but to be a wallflower, when two spinners have a disagreement conversion.

There will be an article of Daisy in the Citizen, probably Tuesday.

Daisy has not been seen today.

Lindberg the eagle pulled a large bass out of the water on the fly. He took it to a high branch for lunch.

Just as Bear Islander predicted....Daisy Duck makes the pages of the Citizen with a couple of nice photos and prominent mention made once again of Winnipesaulee.com!

Great story that can be read on-line HERE!

Thank you very much BI for giving us the opportunity to watch nature at its best. She's a terrific little mom. I couldnt believe her dedication to sitting on that nest through all those terrible storms!
Thanks again!!
