Canada geese nest in strange places

Today I walked up to one of our duck blinds and a Canada goose leapt from the roof. She actually had a nest up there. Goose nests are not much better than dove nests, only bigger. Just a little pile of sticks. No wonder skunks, raccoons, foxes, coyotes and black snakes eat most of the eggs and goslings.

Also lots of blue wing teal and a  few shovelers still hanging around. They’re the first to come down in the fall and the last to leave in the spring. They must like it here.

Couldn’t get a very good photo. Use your imagination.
