WILDLIFE WATCHING -- Canada geese generally nest on the ground. However, they also will nest in cliffs and high in trees, usually by taking over an existing nest, such as one built by a great blue heron. 

This goose, however, appears to be a (large) duck outta water.

Reports Jim Kershner, who snapped the photo Tuesday on the South Hill Bluff trails overlooking Hangman Creek:

Yes, that's a Canada goose sitting way up on a snag. No, I have no idea why. I don't think the goose knew either.
