Happy Easter and spring is here

This isn't right!!  Geese don't lay eggs this high up, in a nest in a tree!!!  When the eggs hatch, the little goselings don't have feathers for a long time, yet they walk around and even swimm!!  This dumb goose is really high in this tree, I used a lot of zoom to take this picture.  I was out with my cow, taking pictures and heard a  noise., I looked up and saw one goose fly away, the other still sitting on the nest.  We had been seeing this, but couldn't believe it was a for sure thing-- - - but it looks as if it is!!  So the little geese are going fall from this tree, and it will be upsetting!   I will be watching this daily!!  I really do find this upsetting!


  1. Oh, dear. I can see you stretching a net around the base of the tree to give the chicks a chance to survive the fall....

  2. Believe me, all ideas have been considered. I don't know how it even stays up there so high in the wind we have had. Its a worry to me, but others have said this is how Mother Nature weeds out the dumb ones!!! I wish there was something I could reasonabley do!

  3. Hi Ida,
    I do hope all turns out well - I am already saying my goosey prayers! Maybe the mom will be realllllllly attentive. Actually, the net is starting to sound like a really good idea, too :).

    I also want to mention how much I enjoyed your last landscape painting!

    Cheers to you and thanks for watching out for our feathered friends,
