a cool night

I’m sad today.

For weeks a Momma goose has been nesting out back. Proud Poppa chasing off everyone.  Yesterday they went for a swim together and while they were around the corner another family invaded the area (mom, dad & four goslings).

I chased the family off once but they’re still too close and I can’t get to them.  And unfortunately the male is far more aggressive than our original Poppa.  So, the nest remains abandoned after no attention overnight and Momma & Poppa can be seen across the lake, distressed.

They tried to come back this morning and were chased off again.

I suppose “it’s nature” but it makes me sad to see Momma & Poppa swimming back and forth, obviously upset…. and those babies are probably dead now after so long unattended and a cool night.
