This is Speckles. She is sitting on 14 eggs - some are fertile and some are not.
Dad found her by the side of the road trying to be invisible so no one would find her sitting on her nest. Dad picked up Speckles, who didn't even try to get away, and then collected her entire nest and brought her and it home and put them both in the swan cottage.
Speckles has had her fun for the evening. She's heading back home to the swan cottage to eat and drink and sit on her nest.
***Mom took dad to the hospital yesterday morning. He was still having lots of pain. They admitted him and he's feeling better at this point and hoping to come home today.
Fingers and paws are crossed!
Love ya lots♥
