Mother Goose Chase


The chase begins. I sat watching the juvenile eagle bouncing around the marsh trying to catch something. Of course, he seemed to fail in his endeavor. He kept coming up empty.

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?
