These canada geese have had this whole marshy field, east of the main canal, for themselves to successfully raise their families in safety…there are quite a number of geese in this pasture too. 🙂

The title is a translation for the status sign on the bus which just brought the geese, swans and ducks back home after a long day out on the town… 😉

Egyptian Geese can usually expect 5-9 eggs in a typical brood, so fifteen is way over the mark, my only theory is this is two broods together…some kind of adoption…but there were only two adults watching over the chicks….so I really don’t know…

Apparently long-tailed tits will feed another brood of chicks if they lose their own brood…so there are fragments of compassion in nature too…but to add that as possible evidence for my theory is probably a bit out there….I just can’t imagine a goose sitting on 15 (possibly more) eggs…can you?
