Waiting for warmth

Spring is nesting season for waterfowl as the weather begins to warm. Byers Homestead in Oakland County’s Commerce Township, also known as the Duck Farm, sells corn so visitors can feed the ducks.  Karen Schantz of the nonprofit organization Friends of Byers said corn is safer for ducks than bread, which can be dangerous to their health. Volunteers of Friends of Byers help preserve and maintain the property, which is home to both wild ducks and snapping turtles. PHOTO/CAITLIN RENTON
