I have seen and have picture of a goose in a previously used great horned owl nest which was formerly a collapsed magpie nest at Chatfield State Park.Rick

I have seen a goose in a red-tailed nest out towards the trap club in Cortez in the past. Big stick nest in a cottonwood. Pic link:

[Attachment(s) from Jim Le Fevre included below] Doing some raptor surveys along Loutsenhizer Arroyo between Olathe and
Montrose I observed something I had never seen before. Surveying along
the western side of the arroyo, coming to a wall of adobe that protruded
into the arroyo, I could just make out the ends of some sticks on what
looked to be a small ledge on an otherwise vertical wall. I couldn't see
around the wall to glimpse the entirety of what I was sure was a raven
nest. I would have to go around to the east side to get a good solid
look. On the eastern side of the arroyo, I relocated the nest and sat
down on the edge of the arroyo to see who might be home. Now, we have
all heard of duck hawks and chicken hawks, but has anyone heard of a
goose hawk? Yep, a goose sitting in a stick nest about 35 feet off the
ground. What a completely ridiculous and intensely funny sight! So, if
anyone else has encountered this phenomena, share your story. I am
curious about other cliff dwelling geese. And always keep your eyes
wide open for the wonders that you will see! And now the pictures....
