As I approached, this honker’s mate flew away, leaving it to fend for itself
In a nearby marsh honkers were paired up. Some were standing on the bank while others were swimming nearby. It appears that the nesting season is beginning. In a few weeks I hope to be able to photograph the goslings.
This has to be the strangest honker I have ever encountered.
I could not believe my eyes when this image materialized on
my computer screen :)
