Joy and Sadness on the Towpath

This baby Canada Goose was the solo survivor
of what had no doubt been a large clutch of eggs laid by his parents.

What got the others? Flood, fox, raccoon, turtle, snake, dog, coyote, hawk?

We are groaning with wildlife and the circle is unbroken, but it drips red in tooth and claw. Spring is a time for new life, but it is also the cruelest season.
