Mother Goose

It will be hard to see her but half way up this tree in the crotch of the 2 branches there is a Canada Goose sitting on a nest of little ones. She is well hidden and her partner is standing guard near the tree! I've never seen one nesting in a tree before.

Nice observation and a photo, Pat!
I am also reminded of the movie with Cary Grant in it, with a similar title - Father Goose :)
It is quite a fun movie from the VHS days.
Have a Happy Day!!
Peace :)

Now that is really different!

What a find! That's a very clever goose!

Andrew said...

Viewing the photo on a tablet, I will have to take your word for it. Old trees with hollows are so important to wildlife.

Jacob said...

I've never seen anything like that before, either. I guess we just have to chalk it up to the superior brain power of Canadian geese! :)

I'm just a little amazed by that trunk.

Tom said...

Hiding, I'll say.

Sharon Anck said...

She's well hidden up there blending in with the color of the tree. She must feel safe there.

William Kendall said...

I can see her too.

I don't think I'd have noticed!

Linda said...

A good eye on your part, and great camouflage by the goose.

Polly said...

Well spotted. What a clever girl, probably quite a safe place and with hubby watching over her too.

Oh wow, what a cool spot for a nest. It does seem safe. Cute goose and duckies. Great photo! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Those ducklings will have a giant first step to leave the nest. Hope they will be alright.

Lois said...

Oh wow! I definitely would have missed that. She certainly found an unusual spot for her nest.

Stephanie said...

Great eye!

You have sharp eyes. I wouldn't have noticed that.
