Canada Goose In Flight For Skywatch Friday

Canada Goose In Flight At Lema Ranch photo by Larry Jordan

I snapped this photo of a Canada Goose that appeared to be trying to help another goose that was sitting up in an oak tree at Lema Ranch.  The other goose was sitting on a branch about 30 feet up in the tree and looked as if it didn’t know how to get down.  This friend kept flying up near the other goose as they were honking at each other the entire time.

This oak tree is at least 50 feet tall and there is some type of nest near the top

I wasn’t able to stay and watch the outcome.  I wonder if that goose is still up there?  I had never seen a Canada Goose sitting up in a tree like that before.  Pretty weird.

To see some other great skywatch photos go visit Skywatch Friday!

I don’t know anything about Canadian Geese either, but I know I’ve never seen one in a tree before. How interesting!

A wonderful capture of his friend and a great post for Skywatch Friday!

I have never seen a Canada Goose act that way either. I love how you were able to get the other one while in flight.

Great capture and a funny story, Larry. I’ve never seen nor heard of geese in a tree before. I’ll bet it was quite a sight!

@Rottlady it seemed pretty strange to me. Thanks for the comment

@Kallen I guess it pays to be in the right place at the right time. Like seeing a Peregrine Falcon on the letter “F” of a sign 😉

@Kyle it was quite a sight. Thanks to your comment, I decided to post it too!
