    As I walked out to get our paper this morning, I scared a mother duck who had created a nest in my rock garden near a tree. I did not see her until it was too late and she flew away. I looked and there is one egg. But it is not covered at all. I know ducks only lay one egg at a time but should I go out and carefully cover the egg? I am afraid she won't come back.
