Place

Woods Gap (Google, OSM)

Description

A mating pair of Canada Geese are on the pond. This is the female, on a clutch of 4 eggs laid on the ground. As I approached the male swam across the pond, I think trying to distract me. The female flattened out is an defensive posture. I backed away, and they got comfortable again. The nest is at risk for all kinds of predators: dogs, raccoons, foxes and coyotes. I wish them luck.
