Shenandoah, IA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Swans wandered onto Goose Island and messed with the goose eggs. Geese stood as long as they could and finally attacked the intruders. Was too dark to get good pix, but you get the idea.

Size doesn't matter when protecting your young. We once watched a squirrel hang down and stick his nose at a wren's bird house. That little wren momma nailed that squirrel's rear like an arrow and he fled in terror.

WOW!! There is a lot of emotion in this picture. That goose is ANGRY, and who can blame him! It matters not at all that the swan is much bigger than the goose.

It reminds me of a mocking bird chasing a much larger crow - something I have seen but not managed to photograph.

About Nikongranny


Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
