One fewer snow goose.
Hello! Still here!
I have taken many pictures of snow geese over the past few years. They hang out in our town throughout the colder, damper months. They eat schoolyards. They poop on them. I have explained this many times in this blog (click on the "snow geese" label for previous posts).
Today I found a first--a dismembered snow goose in a schoolyard. A partial snow goose. A hemi-goose. It's perhaps a good thing that I didn't have a decent camera with me. I also didn't even have one of our i-Things with me, useful gadgets with decent built-in cameras. All I had was a venerable Samsung flip-phone. It has a camera feature, but it really isn't a camera. Thus you are spared the gory bits. (There were some.)
I don't know who got the goose. This was in the field behind Blundell Elementary, for those who know this town. There was a bald eagle flapping around, being harassed by crows and gulls. He's my bet, the way the goose had been consumed in situ. A coyote would have trotted away with it.
More snow goosery later, no doubt.
