Life on the top: 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 out of water. Jim Kershner, who snapped the photo Tuesday on the South Hill Bluff trails overlooking Hangman Creek, offered this lack of insight: “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.”
