Stella and Mac are back. The Canadian geese couple has been nesting at the Tides Tavern since 2011 where they have become the Gig Harbor restaurant’s unofficial mascots.
Over the course of the last 10 years, Stella and Mac have returned to the restaurant every year to nest. Stella’s favorite spot to lay is in one of the restaurant’s outdoor flower barrels.
In 2013, Tides Tavern staff updated Stella’s nest with a platform that raises her further above water.
Stella and Mac returned on March 16, according to Tides Tavern’s Facebook page. Once Stella has settled into her nest, there will be a live stream set up so others can check in on the couple during its time there.
