Nice pics. We get Canada’s here. On the lake behind our house is a Trumpeter Swan nesting area. They fly down the creek honking like mad. And they fly in AFTER dark. Incredible eyesight. I swear they can see me from 400 yds in daylight when I walk out there and they let me know it.
Interesting fact about our harsh winter this year. The lake was ice free last year on 3/17. Swans and Geese came two days later. First Robin was on the 3/23. This year. 2 feet of ice and more than a foot of snow yet. Looking at the forecast, I don’t expect a melt and ice out until mid-April.
Last year we had Orioles by then.. I write all this down in a journal.I got that form my Mom I suppose.
Extremes like that are fairly normal here. It keeps your attention and it sure is beautiful.
Neat stuff! The trumpeter swans would especially be quite a sight.
They were here yesterday. I’d hate to say how many thousands. Such a beautiful sight.
Our puppy chased and chased in the field, but caught none thank goodness. So funny to watch him run & the geese would fly just far enough away & land again. He finally just sat down and watched them like I did.
What a great image…we have a one year old puppy who probably would do the same thing if the geese landed here.
