Two posts in one day! Woo hoo! This was too good to wait though and I know this group will understand my excitement.
I went to Lucy Park today at lunch and was treated to some entertainment. In the center of an open grassy space in the park is an old scraggly Cottonwood tree that has been through several Texas wind storms - so many that it is mainly one big, leaning trunk with leaves and no large branches. About half-way up this tree is a big knot and a cavity that looks like it would be a great place for a squirrel nest. On top of this knot stood a large Canada goose, looking into the cavity and squawking. I don't know what she was doing up there but she did not look very comfortable on that perch. Meanwhile, there was one goose who sat at the bottom of the tree and was talking to the one in the tree. He would flap his wings and chase all the others away. Periodically, one of the other geese (there were 12 - 14 of them) would fly up and dive-bomb the goose in the tree. I sat there and watched about 30 minutes but they never got her down. I don't know what it was all about but they were all excited about it. I might have to drive by after work today and see if she has come down yet.
And, yes, I do know the difference between a duck and a goose but I liked the title too much. :-)
This is just a pencil sketch done in my generic sketchbook.
