Nesting Canada Geese

The Canada Geese are back on the Central Oregon Coast!

We like watching them gather in the marshy grass flats on the river side of Eckman Lake near Waldport.

Tall grass is good for nesting

There’s lots of food and easy access to slow-moving water; good for teaching the kiddos to swim.  And the grass is tall enough to hide the nest.

In fact, its tall enough to hide Mom and Dad in.  Who knows how many geese are in there!
