Camp Zama, Japan – Building 101 Ducks

Every year on Camp Zama, Japan in building 101 there is a female duck who temporarily makes a Japanese garden her home while she lays her eggs and raises her babies. It is actually really smart because the Japanese garden is protected on 4 sides, so the only predators that the duck needs to be concerned with are flying overhead. People who work in this building enjoy stopping by to watch the mother with her babies and seeing how they grow. Some people will even open a window and leave a snack for the ducks. It is always enjoyable and something to look forward to each year.
