For a decade, it has been a tradition for Daisy, a mallard duck, to lay her eggs in a local library in Barrie.

Daisy visits the Barrie Public Library every spring term for about 28 days.

The staff say she always chooses a spot in the downtown rooftop garden, usually in a planter where it’s off the ground and surrounded by flowers.

She is protected and provided with fresh water by the library, which ropes off the area where she nests.

Over the past three years, Daisy has laid ten eggs, all of which have hatched and reached the water safely.

Early in the morning, when the eggs are ready to hatch and leave the nest, the staff walk to the water.

They collect the babies in a box and bring them down to Heritage Park.

When the staff release the ducklings, they choose a place where they will be protected.

Daisy loves to fly or walk with them to say goodbye and departure.
