Meanwhile, at the pond…

We have nine chicks trailing the hen who hatched them, and another hen sitting on a clutch due to hatch in couple of weeks.  But that’s not the only egg-sitting going on around here.

We have a goose sitting on a nest near the edge of our pond.  Hopefully we’ll have some little goslings soon too.

Look carefully to see Mother Goose .

When I came nearer she flattened herself out to hide.

Her mate was swimming in the distance, probably keeping an eye on me and ready to attack if I got to close to the nest.
