When you see this in your front yard, you know immediately that something isn’t right. Who is sitting on the eggs?
Yesterday when I noticed both parents out my window, I ran to check on the nest. First I noticed the water rushing over the spillway from the next lake in the system. We’ve had a lot of rain in the last two days.
And then I looked down at the nest, and this is what I saw. I feel sorry for the goose. She’s been on her eggs (there were four) approximately two weeks, roughly halfway to hatching them. Sometimes Nature turns a blind eye to what seems fair.
