We All Like to Nest

There are many things in life I am grateful for including all of you.  Additionally, I have the privilege to work out of my home office in Kittery Point and observe the wonders of nature.

My home office is on the second floor of my house and I look out upon a large pond – some of you that have been around longer than me say that it used to be a cranberry bog.  One time, I am told, there was a moose stuck in the pond. This spring, it is wetter than usual. I have been watching as a nest was built by a couple of mallards. One day I watched as the ducks fought off some other ducks to protect their nest – first it was a couple of other mallard ducks, then along came two geese and before you know it there were eight unwelcome geese.

Wanting to protect my initial interests, I attempted to scare the geese away. It didn’t work.  Eventually, they did fly away. A hawk also swooped about the nest while the male duck stood on top flailing its wings. That evening, I heard calling from my neighbor who also works out of his home and has shared in my duck nest experience.  Lo and behold on top of the duck nest was a bald eagle with wings spread full. It was a most amazing sight. Fortunately, the show ended quickly, and I have not seen the eagle or hawk since. I am grateful the mallard ducks continue to protect their home and I hope that the eggs are incubating in their nest.

Like our community, we look out for one another. In my profession, I advise people about what is very often their most important investment – their home. I invite you to contact me throughout the year for a free analysis on the value of your home whether you are looking to sell, thinking of buying or just have a need to know.

Likewise, if you want to know more about what is going on in the real estate market, please feel free to email or call me. I will send you information specific to your home and the immediate area.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. In the meantime, enjoy this year’s Tide Chart, the warmer weather, and all our community offers in the coming summer season.

Until nest time
