OFF MY TURF !!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty RED STICK PARTNERS

There are a lot of geese these days in a small pond near our house.  Yesterday three geese families were lined up along the bank, with each set of gosslings only a week or two older than the others.  One family has 11 babies.  This picture of the oldest group shows that there is some competition for territory.  The oncoming adults causing all the ruckus must have another nest with new eggs somewhere nearby.  The big daddy goose here is obviously protective but looks like he's setting a good example for the younger one helping him out.

I love this photo ... had to share it.  My camera was set on continuous shooting, and I took this one as I was backing away and not really seeing what was going on.  When I downloaded the photos it was a nice surprise.

It's interesting that there are three new families of geese in such a small pond.  I think one of the neighbors must be feeding them.  They seem to be gone now ... gone north for the summer?  It would be smart of them to go any where cooler than here !!

We don't have very many Canada geese down this way, so I suspect I'll never get to see the little babies here. We do get lots of baby mallards, though.

Hi Russell ... cute little ducklings.  We have mallards here, too. One family with a female and 3 males has adopted us and a few neighbors.  They are fun to watch, but they can make a real mess of the garden.  On Friday during a terrible downpour and thunderstorm with high winds they just stood in the driveway looking for bugs.  I always wondered what they do in a storm ... not to worry, they did just fine.

Hi Sallie,

Just stopping by to see how is everything with you...I have been extremely busy this summer and did not have much time to allocate to ActiveRain as I wish I would...Hope everything is fine.
