  2. I love watching flocks of birds in flight. It’s like an aerial ballet.

    1. Indeed it is, Raili! And when a gaggle of geese fly over, calling to each other, its like a musical one!

    1. They sound as though they are deep in conversation, Eugenia. I wonder if they keep it up the whole journey?

      1. Hmmm, good question. They are always deep in conversation when they fly over our area.

      1. That isn’t what worries me – we had a guy with a long white beard around earlier complaining about the price of gopher wood… πŸ˜‰

        God Bless!

  7. Here in Ontario Canada we only see them fly away in October & some years November. Seeing them early this year means winter will be early. I bought my snowshoes already so I’m ready for my winter Spirit Walks and of course taking pictures. πŸ˜‰ I love Canadian Geese they make me smile each time. Whenever I take pictures up close when they are on the ground they always walk away from me. Observing their behavior always gives me a Aha moment!

    1. They are fascinating creatures, Diane. The ones that visit the Lake are human friendly, so will come over to say hello and would gladly take a bite to eat from out of the hand. They are less likely when they have little ones, but they still interact. And yes, they are very relaxing.

        1. These here will have a go at anything… eating a sandwich? One will approach and try to try a bit for itself!
          One must’ve thought I looked a little edible once… it slowly walked over to me and tried to peck my hand… I’m wondering now if it thought I had something for it (which I didn’t at the time!). They are lovely up close though… although a little unnerving when in pecking mood! πŸ˜€

          1. Their not scared to get up close but I guess it can be annoying.
