We have a mama goose!

Well, not so much that we have a goose, as she chose our backyard for a nesting place. Luckily she chose a spot right outside the window, so we can watch the nest, without being noticed too much or scaring mama away. So far, we have counted 6 eggs. We are not sure if we are seeing all of them, because we just catch glimpses as mama goose moves around or covers them with leaves so she can go off to eat and swim.

And here is protective dad, always watchfully swimming around our pond, guarding the nest. IMG_7178

We will be sure to keep you posted on our little goose family as they hatch and grow!
