Well, actually it’s a Canada Goose but you get the idea. This is a shot from one of our walks on the Roswell River Walk near the Chattahoochee Nature Center. The boardwalk cuts through a wetland area between the street and the river which attracts lots of water birds.
Geese and ducks wade about here most of the time and we were watching as this one was preening. With its neck turned backwards, the goose kept pushing beak through feathers and splashing in the water. The day was overcast, foggy and cold but it was fun to watch and a nice place for a walk.
