It's the time of the year when the local Canada geese are nesting. Over the years, I have noted that different geese have different dispositions... the only problem is that I can't tell the geese apart. We have an aggressive breeding pair that nests near one of our buildings, in a heavily trafficked part of the site. Then there's this sweetie, who builds her nest next to one of the pathways leading to our main site, on the other side of a picket fence:
She is a calm bird, and she has gotten to the point where she doesn't even hiss when I pause near her nest to open up the gate in the fence near her. As you can imagine, she has become a staff favorite because of her beauty and gentleness. I just wish that her neighbors would make her their role model.
