Description

In front of my house—not a part of my FeederWatch area—there is meadow that is about the length of two football fields, and it contains a nice sized pond that attracts a variety of water fowl: ducks, geese and even Great Blue Herons. This pair of Canada Geese stopped by to look over the pond, perhaps sizing it up as a place to make a nest and raise some babies, and maybe they were born here. Several years ago a pair DID nest near the pond and successfully raise 7 goslings, which was quite a feat because my neighbor has a dog that gets its exercise by running through the meadow several times per day, chasing anything that moves. That is why I don’t except further nesting by Canada Geese…but it is always a treat to have them visit, and, even though the pond is 250 feet from my house, I’ll open a window and take a few long-range photos like these.
