Nothing spectacular about the photo ... Just posted it because of a couple of curiosity points it brought to mind.
1) These birds are so skittish and usually dive and swim away when I drive by yet this one built her nest about 20 feet from the road albeit a lightly used one.

2) Does she have flood insurance or does her nest float ... she is on a pond that frequently floods over and closes the road. Her "house", like a lot of those belonging to humans, is going to be "way under water."

They do stick their nests in peculiar places Paul. Yes the nests to float, they are rarely built on solid ground. Very nice shot of the egg warmer
