Back in April I posted a take of a female Canadian Goose on her nest. Some reviewers asked if I would post an update. Well here it is. She had 5 eggs and 1 didn't hatch. My frequent trips to my blind got the attention of the locals. One day after observing for a while I was about to leave when a couple approached and asked what I was doing and if I had any intentions of approaching the nest. I explained that I only interested in documenting what I could from this distance. They explained that the Geese (Pauline and Paul), as they named them, had been nesting there for many years. Concealment was not the primary defense from predation. Its position in the marsh is the key. Lots of deep marsh between the nest and shore, while on the other side was the open water of 19 Mile Bay. I am going to keep track of them throughout the summer to see how many fledge and take flight ... B-))
