This evening, Zoe and I went up the University lakes just as it was beginning to get dark. One of the female Egyptian geese was sitting in some reeds near the southern tip of the large lake. We were told that she was sitting on 8 chicks that had just recently hatched out. We didn't actually see the chicks, they had presumably settled down for the night. However, Zoe and I will be up early tomorrow morning and we hope to see them then.
