Duck, Duck, Goose


I hope you all had a lovely St. Patrick's Day weekend!  The weather was picture perfect here and we spent as much time outside as we could.




Mr. Tide worked in the yard, while I ran errands and had lunch with Ms. M.  It was good to see her and have some time to chat about nothing in particular.




Most of the Canada Geese have headed back up north for the summer months, but there are a few hangers on, like the two pictured above.




Many people find them to be a nuisance,  but they don't really bother us much.  They simply fly back and forth between the creek and the field next door.  I love hearing them honk all throughout the winter months, they add a little noise when so many of the other birds have gone.

The two that are still with us seem to be a mating pair and they also seem to have set up shop in the wetlands across the creek from us.  So maybe we will have a few goslings in the next month or two.

I hope you each have a wonderful week!  Work will be calling my name most days, but not so much that I won't take a peek at the happy feathered couple from time to time.

  4. I really love Canada Geese...your photos are lovely! I have heard the ice is out at our lakehouse, so soon we'll be getting the dock and lift in! Can't wait to see all the ducks, geese and their babies! Hope you have a wonderful week, Kat!

  5. We saw your Canada Geese flying over the St. Lawrence River when we were on our road trip. There were so many huge Vs with up to 50 geese in them and some of them were very high up in the sky.

    Love your photos of the geese.

  6. Lovely photos, Kat! I especially love that last one. My parents have a bunch of CG up at their house and Lillie loves watching them waddle around. There are some down in CW that she loves too that we often go feed.

  7. You feel MUCH more kindly towards Canada geese than I do!

  8. Do you know why one side of the formation is always longer when geese are flying in their aerodynamic V? (you'll love this one.)

    There are more birds on that side!

    Have a great week.

  9. Your photos are beautiful! I'd like to say that I feel as kindly toward Canada geese as you do, but we're grateful that the swans scare them away. It's not the geese that we find a nuisance, it's the goose poop.
