Emperor goose nest parasitism behavior

Nest parasitism is often seen in waterfowl, particularly in a captive setting. In this video, an emperor goose has taken it upon herself to get comfortable in this greater white-fronted goose nest, with seemingly little opposition, to lay her egg. This is the second egg she has laid in their nest. It’s not that their isn’t a bevy of options to choose from, either. Emperor geese have shown parasitic nesting behavior here at Pinola several times over the years, but have also made their own nests, too. This goose, particularly, has done both!
