Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Nest Site Three Stories Up & That is Not All~

Well, I posted this and forgot to add my information...  This pair of Canada Geese had made their nest atop the chimney on this 3 story tall, that my lens could only take in 2 floors.

I did a little research and learned that these geese will indeed sometimes do this and if it is a 2 story building with turf and not pavement below, the goslings will take a leap, and or, be pushed off by one of the parents.  Since they are light and fluffy, they usually do not get hurt. 

However, a 3 story house is not a good thing at all.  Besides that, this is the same yard, not even 200' away that the Red-shouldered Hawks now have built a nest.  That is a whole other story, with much more to share next post~


  1. Ah, the old Canada Geese, aren't they lovely. And, you caught them flying, well done Mary.

  2. Mary,
    I always thought Canada Geese needed space to landing and a running take off. We never had any at our pond because of not the space to fly off.

  3. Interesting about the Canada Geese! At this time of year I se them on my daily walks.
