*The side note from photographer David, mentioned above: “I know that Canada geese aren’t the most popular bird on the planet, but this little guy is kind of cute. This is another good reason for compliance with the dogs on a leash rule. These geese are generally terrified of dogs (especially large or active ones), even if the dogs are leashed but the owners approach too close. Over the years I have noticed that when the geese make a break to escape to the water by scrambling over the large rocks lining the shore, the small goslings can’t keep up and frequently fall in the large gaps in the rocks and are then trapped – or injure their legs trying to jump across. My wife and I have taken quite a number of the injured ones to PAWS where they usually end up having to be euthanized.”

    I agree Honkers aren’t the most popular of our feathered creatures but they are a gift from Nature and anyways how could you dislike that face!!! I for one luv all animals feathered or not.

    Thank you for the adorable photo – and for the reminder to KEEP YOUR DOGS ON LEASH AND AWAY FROM OUR BIRDS!

    curious what’s up with the calendar; I don’t see this featured multicultural event in the calendar; and I don’t see CM Lisa Herbold’s office hours tomorrow, in the calendar; also been hearing at events around WS that they’ve tried to get listed in calendar and running into “issues”; are there still problems since your ginormous site conversion?

      Some things don’t get to us in time or in format for the calendar. We need at least a week in advance. Got the Sealth event yesterday. Why Herbold’s not showing for tomorrow, don’t know, will look. We do our best. – TR

    Great reminder about keeping dogs away from the geese.   The gosling picture is beautiful.

Sorry, comment time is over.
