He made the mistake of getting to close to a goose’s nest. A new chase was on. This mother goose was set on getting the eagle. The eagle made his escape and flew to a nearby tree. But not without his pride being wounded along with his backside.
I have seen the many times the geese defending their nest from ospreys, eagles and hawks. They are a perfect example of a mother’s willingness to do whatever it takes to protect her young.
With Mother’s Day approaching fast, I wonder if we can remember times in our past when our mothers defending us? I also wondered, as mothers ourselves, what we would do?
