Meadow On Her Nest
These are floating nests that were built by my father-in-law many years ago (I don't know how many...) They are meant for the wild Canada geese that come through every spring. There has only been one pair the last few years and Meadow has chosen a different nest than the mama goose usually uses(there are three) so hopefully the geese will still stay. They take their babies down to the creek the day they hatch. I am worried Meadow's babies will be eaten by the big-mouthed bass that are in the pond, anybody know if they eat ducklings?? I could always capture mama and babies when they come up to eat and pen them for a couple weeks till they are too big for the fish to eat, or for a couple months so they'll have a better chance against the foxes when traveling between the house and the pond *sigh*.
