Canadian Honkers

We have a small baseball park about 4 of 5 miles from us, and there is a really big pond just beyond the outfield. I noticed the other day that the water is opening, and the canadian geese have been hanging out there. So down I went, to see if I could get a few pics. I think I need to practice my approach methods............either that, or remember to bring some corn next time!

Re: Canadian Honkers

Love the pics! Thanks for reminding me that very soon we should be seeing Canadian geese coming back here for the spring/summer. We had so much fun last year taking the kids to the park where the river runs through it to feed the geese bread. I got some pics but none near as good as yours.

The barn picture should be a calendar page.

Re: Canadian Honkers

I love those things, I am right on a lake that is also a protected wetland and they returned about 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately, most around here see them as a menace.

Re: Canadian Honkers

There is a pond not far from me in a small park with a walking path. It's a nice little community park, and the pond attracts geese. Unfortunately, the people who use the park also consider the geese pests--because of the droppings on the walking path.

Re: Canadian Honkers

That is sad, Jeanie. At the park where we've fed the geese a few times there are also other "regulars" that go there to fed them. Those geese are kept well fed and from what I understand about them, geese usually fly back to the same location year after year so these geese know the park and its patrons well!

Re: Canadian Honkers

Thanks all!

The geese are messy, but they way I look at it, is you have to take the good with the bad, and I like seeing them, so the poo doesn't bother me. It's just like the deer and turkey poo here in our yard, but heh, I love the nature we see everyday, so it's just part of the deal. It's sad that some people can't look past it, and see the beauty in things, rather than always being so critical.
