Crazy or Smart Goose: You be the Judge

My husband took these photos today for Camera Critters.  On one of his job sites in a tree about 20ft up, is a Canada Goose who decided for what ever her reasons to place her nest.  She may have thought nobody could bother her up there.  My question is how is she going to get her babies down?  Canada Geese are really not fussy where they put their nest.  My friend and I saw one at the Mall yesterday that had her nest just off the sidewalk where people walk by her all the time.   When I had a school bus route I would come across mommy goose and her goslings trying to cross the road.  In order not to have someone run her over I ran out the stop sign and put on my flashing lights until she crossed the road. 

It will be interesting to see how she gets on.  Will keep you posted.   Enjoy your weekend.


How are babies going to get down? Keep us posted.
We never saw Canada Geese nest in a tree. What an interesting capture.

What was this mother thinking? There must have been a reason for her to build the nest up in the tree - ground predators?

Well, this looks easier to get down than the osprey nest I saw a goose in a couple of days ago. It was atop a hydro pole. :)

Wow, that is crazy. I can see those babies falling out of that nest. Great photos!
I have not seen a Canadian Goose nest in a tree either, let us know how she gets her goslings down.

That's amazing, well spotted by your husband. I will be really interested in seeing how this turns out. I've seen ducklings jump out from great heights on nature shows. Maybe these will glide to the ground just as gracefully.

Wow.. how did it managed to get up so high and perfectly hidden. :-) Amazing. Great shot by your husband.

Nice capture!Please keep us updated how she will bring the goslings down :)

Interesting and I too wonder how the gosslings will make out. All the Canada goose nest I have ever located have been on the ground.
I had seen a Canada goose in a tree a couple of weeks ago, and I wondered if she was really going to try to nest up there. I had not seen that before. Guess it's not as uncommon as I thought.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
