Canada Geese

A bird often complained about due to their aggressiveness, nuisance, and land damage is the Canada Goose.  I’ve always enjoyed their beauty and noise.  At sunrise on the Chesapeake Bay, hearing them ‘honk’ to each other as they awaken was a joy to me.

There is a small community pond near my daughter’s home in Delaware where I can park alongside and photograph them from my car.

Dropping from the sky, Canada Geese silhouettes can look a bit comical, feet dangling for landing and with the appearance of possible air-collisions about to happen.

By evening, the pond would be full of Canada Geese for a night’s rest.

Some close-ups from a brighter day…..

With Spring arriving, it appears these daily visitors have already moved on, perhaps migrating back north to their summer breeding grounds.
