I am watching a Peregrine Falcon nest in a local quarry.  On an adjacent
ledge on the quarry wall is a Mallard hen on a nest.  She has been
incubating at least since 4/28.  I don't see a safe path to the water for
the chicks if they hatch and find this an unusual nest location.  I can't
find any documentation of a Mallard hen nesting in such a location.  I can
send a photos of the nest location and the hen on the nest if anyone is
Any information appreciated.
