This Canadian Goose wasn’t very far from the shoreline, neither was I when the bird reared up and flapped its wings several times. It had been splashing about taking a bath for a few minutes. Honestly, the sound of the wings was impressive as was the powerful thump that I could feel in my chest as those powerful wings moved so rapidly. These are large, powerful, and beautiful birds. Just keep an eye on the ground as you walk about the park. As a kid in Michigan, I’ve stepped on too much goose poop!
