Easy Banana PancakesIf you really want to bring out the flavour of bananas in your homemade banana pancakes, my suggestion is using very few ingredients. These pancakes just use one banana, one egg, two tablespoons of quick oats, and a bit of baking powder (if you like them fluffy like I do). These pancakes are super moist and velvety. I hope you try these out!

Mallard Abandoned an Empty NestI noticed a mallard duck nesting in my yard, very close to a lake, for a few days. I put a piece of bread near her yesterday morning. Yesterday evening I checked on her, no sign of eggs. This morning I noticed she was not in her nest and no eggs. Would a duck relocate before she laid eggs? Is it because I went near her? I was always about 4 ft away.
