For this weekly photo challenge, I am submitting a photo I took this morning at Abott Marshlands near Hamilton, NJ. A pair of Canada Geese were walking on the mud banks at low tide, and one of them had a broken wing that was almost touching the ground. Since the injured bird was larger than the other, I am assuming it’s a male. The female goose followed him faithfully, but I don’t know what she could do for him. I also don’t know what caused the injury, but it could be the result of an attack by some predator, such as an eagle or a turkey vulture. In any case, it must have been quite an adventure for this pair of geese! I hope he will somehow survive his ordeal.
