On his bird survey walks in Bill's Woods this April, David Liebl encountered an American Black Duck, not often seen, especially in the woods. Apparently she had decided that this big tree trunk, exposed to the sun, was a good place for building a nest. the next day David saw her sitting on the nest ..., well camouflaged. Nearby, he also spotted a herd (!!) of six deer.
