Description

Geese don't usually visit this pond, maybe because it doesn't provide much runway for take offs, and there is cover for predators to hide behind. But first one pair arrived, then in about an hour a second pair circled six times, then landed. Immediately there was a squabble. Finally both pair left. Peace again.

The place holder in the species field is there to direct helpful suggestions as to what pathogen is involved in turning this salal leaf brown. The obverse view shows a powdery cast to the leaf.
