Goose island


I’m never surprised to see Canada geese along the shores of Lake Natoma. But this pair it seems have found a safe nesting spot on a tiny island, shielded by Himalayan blackberry bushes and almost completely invisible from shore. The only way I managed to take pictures was by balancing awkwardly on some rocks and sticking my camera lens through a bunch of hanging branches. I never did see the actual nest or any young, but I was able to watch one goose come and go a few times while the other sat still in the bushes, both clearly keeping an eye out for any trouble.
