This is "Mother Goose." She's a Canada goose who has constructed a nest and raised her goslings on the roof of the Contra Costa Times in Walnut Creek, California, every spring for the last five years. She laid her eggs this year around Friday, Feb. 26. After weeks of being incubated by Mother Goose, her seven eggs hatched on Tuesday, March 30! The seven goslings were still in mom's nest atop our building as of Wednesday, March 31.

Check back as we track the flight of the goslings as they get set to leave the comfort of their nest.
