Horicon Marsh is the largest freshwater cattail marsh found in the United States. The Marsh is divided into a State Wildlife Area and a National Wildlife Refuge. One of the highlights of the marsh is that it is a popular birding location during the spring and fall migrations. This photo was taken on a weekend in late spring along one of the trails near the Visitor’s Center in the State Wildlife Area. The marsh was filled with tons of geese, including this family which decided to take a leisurely stroll along the trail, the goslings busy trying to find something to eat while the parents kept an eye on the surroundings. While it was fun to watch, it also meant that we had to wait until the geese finally got off the trail to continue our hike since we did not want to disturb them.
