There is a protected wildlife area right next to my work. There are always geese moseying around the parking lot. We have to be careful because it is illegal to hit them and I hear it’s a hefty fine. Besides, who would want to hurt those crazy birds?
This spring, we’ve had one very protective papa goose. If anyone came within four feet of his mama goose and their nest, he would fly off of his perch on top of the bike lockers and attack.
Because papa goose was doing such a good job protecting the nest, the number of eggs that were incubating was a mystery.
Until today. I was on my way home, I saw some fuzzy babies and turned around to take pictures.
It turns out that she was taking care of a dozen eggs!
They are too cute.
It’s definitely Spring! I’m going to go enjoy the sun.
Hugs and stuff,
