If any of you are bird lovers, you should check this out. For the second year in a row, the Journal has their goose-cam up and running. One of the photographers lives on an acreage and had a Canada goose nest on his property, so last year he and another photographer trained a live webcam on it and people witnessed the hatching of six little goslings. This year’s camera started running last week, and mama goose is kind enough to pose again.

If you happen upon a screen with just straw on it; never fear. When she leaves the nest, she covers the eggs, then uncovers them when she returns. She is not a deadbeat mom! (People really freak out in the comments when they see an empty nest)

    I consider myself a bird-lover, but I’m going to give the goosecam a miss… a friend and I were attacked one year by a one-legged, one-eyed goose in Hawrelak Park and I don’t want to trigger any flashbacks!

    I killed a goose yesterday.

    I did a shit on it.
