The Illusive Goose

One of my trios of geese has been missing a member. For some time I've only seen two of them, the third no where to be found.

The remaining two hang out together - but one mud puddle isn't big enough for both of them.

This puddle is only a few inches deep. It's amazing how a goose can make it look like a small pond.

As I came back from the mud puddle area, I noticed my neighbor mowing his lawn and stopped to say hi. He waved me into the yard. While mowing, he found Goose #3, just beyond his fence, sitting on a nest of goslings! She found a safe area surrounded by old cages and the fence, and obviously well protected from the ravens. Goslings! Clever goose.
