Since the Corona pandemic, Mike has been working from home and taking walks along the Saskatchewan riverbank near where he lives in Saskatoon. One day, he accidentally noticed a particular goose, who definitely had her hands full.

Digout said: “I was stunned that this mom had 16 babies, so I started going back every night looking for this mom and her goslings. And every day it seemed like she had a bigger group.” It went from 16, to 25, until eventually… 47 goslings. It was then that Mike realized, she was taking care of goslings from different families.
