Not my favourite bird, but we annually have a family of Canada geese which nest on the central island in our mini lake. They make a huge mess of the area around the pond set aside as a wildlife area.
This year they hatched 5 goslings about 2 weeks ago.
Yesterday I did not notice them, and today went to check.
The pond was littered with feathers, including large adult feathers.
In spite of their messy natures and aggression I still feel sad about their demise.
