Waiting for what you might ask? Waiting for spring and watching over this pond so no other pair of geese take it over, come spring and they'll raise another gaggle of goslings. This is a young pair, (newly weds you could say) and last year they only managed to raise on gosling to adulthood. Older pairs have an almost 100% success rate, raising six or more.
