I took a short bike ride this morning down the Indian Bend Wash path and and then doubled back through Chaparral Park this morning, stopping by the bird island on the south end of the park. It’s spring, and was hoping to see if there were any baby geese or ducks around.
I spotted several eggs out on the island (circled in red). Yes, they are really lying out there in the open.
And, in a few days, or maybe a little longer, they’ll be hatching and looking like this:
These three baby geese (goslings) from last year were adorable, and definitely drew a crowd.
There’s parking on the east side of the lake, when you enter from Chaparral Road. Otherwise, you can enter further north on Jackrabbit, park, and then walk south to the lake.
