This morning I went down to have a look at the nesting Canada Goose I've been watching the past couple of weeks. It's gone and the nest is empty and torn apart. No idea what happened. I don't know if they hatched and the mother pushed them into the river, if predators got them, or if some asshole just trashed it for some stupid reason only understandable to assholes.
A guy who came up to me on the bridge when I was looking at it, said the goose was there yesterday morning. He also said a goose had a nest in the same spot last year.
