The nest doesn't really consist of much, just a few twigs and the mother goose sitting on her eggs. When I was nearby, the mother was perfect still while the father strutted about to attract my attention.

The male was banded, and I was able to read off the number back at the computer by zooming in on the photos. I found a website for reporting the number and filed a report. After I clicked "submit" I got the following message:
The goose was banded at Osborndale Park in 2007, so I've nicknamed him Ozzy (does that make mommy "Sharon"?) He's at least seven years old.
