Love Affair Gone Awry

Filed under: Eureka Springs Wildlife — peabody @ 3:03 am

Most of our guests at The Peabody House and The Inn at Rose Hall know we own Lake Lucerne Cottages and the lake by the same name.  The lake is a small 6-acre lake two miles south of downtown Eureka Springs.

Over the past five years our guests have watched the waterfowl change from time to time on the lake depending upon the season.  Several years ago we became the owners of a flock of domestic geese that are noisy, territorial and possessive.  In spite of all of that they are very entertaining and we all love to watch their antics.

This spring we had three Canadian Geese arrive and check out the lake as a possible home.  The Domestic crew was not happy about their arrival and proceeded to force two of them to move on.  One did not leave.  She fell in love with one of the Domestic boys.  They have been a couple for the entire summer.  He has defended her time and time again.

Now we are waiting to see what happens in the fall.  Is she going to break his heart?  Will she stay or will she go?
