The Decorah Eagle cam folks also had a cam this spring on a Canada goose pair nesting high up on a platform and video of the young as they each became bolder and took the plunge, then all gathererd together on the ground with the adults and walked a bit of a distance to the nearest water. Was interesting watching them negotiate the tall grass and weeds in their way as they finally made it. A bit more traumatic entry into their world then those fledged at water level but the trade off certainly being a safer nesting site!
