Surprise Tenant 4

Three Surviving Chicks

Three Surviving Chicks

. . . I immediately walked to the Crystal Lake shore (Shasta County CA) closest to the osprey (Pandion haliaetus) nest. There swam a pair of Canada geese (Branta canadensis) and three goslings about the same age as the dead gosling (see Surprise Tenant 3) found under the osprey nest. I watch Crystal Lake closely for waterfowl and their young. These are the first goslings are on the water this year – and very near the osprey nest. I assume these are the osprey nest pair and their three surviving chicks – a mostly happy ending to the story. If I am wrong, I do not want to know.
