End of my Goose nest study


A raccoon ended my goose nest study after only 4 days. Sad ending but that's part of natural selection in the wild and happens everyday but with trail cameras we can now study and get better knowledge of real life.

The two eggs were still there but the goose had abandoned the nest and not been back. The eggs were cold and wet from the weather so she most likely found a better location to build another nest to raise the next family of goslings.
