We have had one Canadian goose hanging around down at our farm pond for the past 3-4 days. Seems to be healthy although I have not seen it fly. I'm thinking (a) it may have lost its mate, or (b) it may be protecting a nesting female. I'll just keep monitoring it to see what happens.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Will be interesting to see what you find out...hope it is in "protect" mode.

It's still floating around on a daily basis. I had three large dogs down there the other day, and the goose was definitely in aggressive mode, so I'm hoping there's a nesting female and we'll get some babies. Not sure how long they have to sit.

Well, the goose appears to be gone - haven't seen it for a couple days. So perhaps it was mourning a lost mate, who knows... We did have a little duck family down there for a bit but I never had my camera with me and they were also apparently just on a stop-over and are now gone. I'm pretty OK with that - much as I like to see the little babies, I'm glad no ducks/geese have adopted our pond as a year-round home which I understand can get quite messy. Just wish I had a better camera for those long shots.

And now it's back again, just floating around.
