Mallard makes herself at home at UMPI’s Center for Innovative Learning

The University of Maine at Presque Isle is known as the Home of the Owls, but right now it's playing host to a mother duck waiting for her nestful of eggs to hatch.

University Library staffer Michelle Greene discovered the duck and her nest on May 1, when faculty, staff, and students were celebrating "UMPI Day" by cleaning up around campus.
