Help! Found wild duck nest, accidentally scared her off....

post #1 of 5

I found a wild mallard nest under a big pine tree in my front yard. I found it because she flew off of it, will she come back?

Most likely she will come back, just stay out of the area and she will come back and sit on her eggs.

They were the good old days because we were young then !

Leave it alone. It's not uncommon for ducks to leave their nests when sitting on eggs.
