One of the nicest parts of the Spring at Eli’s is the seasonal migration of the Mallard Ducks and Canadian Geese through Chicago. As shown in the photo below, you can see that the historic use of our campus at the Dunning Mental Health Center included a beautiful lagoon in the early 20th Century.

Today the visit by one Mallard Duck was made even more special when we found its nest and 6 eggs adjacent to our patio. We have named the Duck, “Daisy,” and are doing everything possible to make its stay pleasant.
