Message of the Day – An Egg

OK, ornithologists.

It was on the edge of the Fox River in Algonquin.

There were several of them that obviously the mother bird was not able to save from the recent high water.

April 12th we saw a goose on what I called Goose Island.”

We thought maybe she was sitting on a nest of eggs, but when we returned a week later, the goose was gone.

Turns out it wasn’t a permanent island.
