Nesting Time...

Canadian Goose, Nesting, Memphis Botanic Garden
We saw at least four Canadian geese nesting, including this lovely mother-to-be (and we also were eyed very closely by their protective gander mates) when we visited the Memphis Botanic Garden this past weekend. Hopefully we soon will be taking photos of cute baby goslings. Spring is just full of expectation, isn't it?

She looks content in the warm sun. Soon there will be a lot of busy little geese scurrying all around.

Its very pretty. Does she sit there until the egg hatches?

They can get pretty territorial but will always calm down to take a handout!

I've always loved these geese. They are very special. I know they can be a pest (and they are, in some areas), but when I look at them I see beauty and grace.

Can't wait to see the cute goslings. :)

This is fantastic! I had domesticated geese and they were never able to hatch their own eggs. I had to incubate them. What an experience!

Looking at this makes my heart melt!
