I wrote about the Contra Costa Times’ very own “Mother Goose” here on March 7. You can scroll down and read what I said. She is a Canada goose who started nesting on our rooftop six years ago and has returned every spring since then to raise a new family of goslings.

Watch our Mother Goose yourself during daylight hours via our Webcam:

Watch her preening as she sits on her nest of redwood tree duff and incubates her eggs. Watch her stand up every so often to turn the eggs carefully with her beak to make sure they are being properly incubated. NOTE: When Mother Goose takes a break, she covers her eggs with nest material to keep them insulated and warm until she returns, so don’t panic if you see an empty nest. She’ll be back soon.

Now click on our Webcam and sit back and enjoy! /Gary
