DUCK Down!!! NOW!!! OspreyLand

I was waiting for either Ma or Pa to come back to their nest. I heard her wings behind me, She went on by but made another circle instead of going to her nest with her small twig so she came by again so I turned around and as I pressed the trigger she turned. I said "Yes Ma I am to close and I will leave and I went to a different bush a little farther away. She went to her nest and dropped the twig and settled in.

She doesn't look happy with you at all! That's closer than I'd want to be to her - she looks like she could inflict damage on a person if she wanted to.

Hi Roger,

#3 looks like a closeup of my typical BIF attempt! :-).

I had a close call with a Canada goose once. I was walking through a field after doing some fishing. I heard large flapping wings behind me, getting closer. The sound was getting unusually loud, so I turned, just in time to look the goose in the eyes just before he went just over my head, knocking my ball cap off with one of his feet. Not quite like getting dive-bombed by a raptor, but it would've hurt if he would have hit me full on. . .

I backed off and she was just fine. I guess she has a line drawn in the sand and I found out where that is. mtngal thanks for commenting and for taking the time to look.

I imagine if a goose hit you you would end up on the ground. A lot of weight hitting someone would hurt. Thanks for looking and for commenting.
