Our Goose Family

Goose Family

Every year a pair of Canada Geese come to our neighborhood pond to nest and raise their young. I think they are Canada Geese. They have a Canadian accent. I see them most mornings and most evenings and try to snap a photo. I wish I had Henry with me to get really good shots but that would probably take a LOT longer than just sticking my Casio out the window.

I never tire of watching these critters. And seeing the goslings turn into grown-up geese is a little bit amazing. One of the adults is always "on guard." At least that’s what I imagine is going on. There are dogs in the neighborhood but I’ve never seen them chasing the geese, who stay pretty close to the pond.

I don’t know how long they’ll stay around but I’ll keep adding shots to this flicker set as I get them.

    Heck no, it would only take me about 1/500th of a second…
    That is a good shutter speed for birds.
    And I agree with your choice of using a car as a blind. I’ve had good success with that too.

  2. If they are from Canada have you asked them for their passport?
    Totally dumb joke but couldn’t resist!

  3. Sure look like Canada geese to me. When we lived aboard, loved to watch the geese that shared the marina. Especially enjoyed the flight lessons.
