I found another nest a few days ago, but we aren't sure what it is. I found it with one egg and the nest bowl was slightly covered with vegetation. Now there are 3 eggs and there is a huge mat of vegetation over the nest; you would never even see it if you didn't know it was there. There is a Long-tailed Duck pair in the area, but the eggs look too big for them. Hopefully the next few days will reveal who the culprit is.
