Canada Geese in Landing Form

.

We have year-round Canada Geese, but their population increases substantially as the winter migrants arrive, which has been going on for several weeks now.

And there’s still more of them to come!

Have you ever watched Canada Geese when they’ve begun their descent to the ground or water?  Sometimes they look a bit comical!

A side note–
So sorry for the sudden blog break without notice, my late comment replies, and my missed visits to your blogs.  Both of our fathers have been in the hospital over the holidays.  My father-in-law is back home and doing fine, thankfully.

My Dad, though, is not doing well.  He was towards the end of an intense five-week chemo and radiation regimen for esophagus cancer diagnosed just weeks prior.  He was admitted a couple days before Thanksgiving for being malnourished and dehydrated, and was going into sepsis, which he is still fighting.  I am so worried, and am now not permitted back into the hospital to see him.

If you believe in the power of prayer, would you please say an extra one to include my Dad next time?  He needs comfort and strength so much right now and the days ahead.  Thank you kindly, my friends, I truly appreciate it.  🙏

  1. A great series of flight shots Donna. So Sad for your dads, and distressing to you and your husband. That’s not a nice cancer to fight. We will pray for his healing and recovery and success for his treatment. It is difficult time in life for elderly parents. May your dad and yourselves know the peace and comfort of our Lord.

  2. You and your father are in my prayers. The geese are nicely spaced out in “here we come.” but it is like a scene at the airport when everyone arrives all at once. Take care.

    • Thank you very much, Jane, for your prayers. Yes, geese do look like they’re approaching an airport, funny when too many are landing at once, trying not to land on each other.

  3. Donna, I am so sorry for you and your family. Having both fathers ill, and having your father in such serious condition is so sad. He will be in our prayers, as will you. Thank you so much for sharing this, and I know that your love of nature, and the fact that you are surrounded by so much beauty will keep you going through these tough times.

  4. We have lots of Canada geese on our estuary too, but I can’t get close enough to get a decent photograph. (I don’t know how you do it!) I will keep my fingers crossed for your dad. I sincerely hope he comes through the chemo successfully.

  5. Great photos! Love the overhead shot! A different perspective. I will have to pay more attention next time I see them land. I’m so sorry your dad is not well. My prayers are with him and your family. If he can drink, I suggest some soothing green tea (a cancer fighter). Lots of cruciferous veggies, onions and garlic too!

  6. So sorry to hear this dear Donna, sending healing thoughts and prayers to you all 💞💜💞🙏

  7. Donna, sorry you’ve had such a tough time these past few days. I’m definitely sending love and light your way, praying for your dad’s recovery.
    Take care of yourself and think only of the most positive outcomes. ❤

  8. Geese! We have loads of them here because we have quite a few ponds as we live on a golf course and they’re so loud and entertaining! This series is wonderful and so spot on!! We had at least 70 geese on the green behind our house on Tuesday it was quite the sight!

    I’ve been away and busy with family since Nov. 23rd but, have been checking on email and blogs, but not commenting since I only had my phone which I find a pain to use for dialogue and comments but, I noticed you were not posting. I wondered if something was amiss or you too were traveling and busy with family for Thanksgiving. I’m so, so sorry to hear your Dad and father-in-law are poorly. I will keep you and your Father’s in my prayers. I’m happy to hear your f-i-l is doing better! I hope your Dad improves soon and has a full recovery! 🥰 🕊❤

  9. As ubiquitous as Canada Geese are I have a hard time ignoring them too. They are big and beautiful, graceful and then sometimes goofy.
    My thoughts are with you and your dad. So sorry to hear about his illness. I hope he responds well to treatment and you can see him soon. Sending virtual hugs to you.

  10. Dear Donna, what a tryingly sad time, I am so sorry. Watching our dear ones struggle through illness is hard enough, without the complications and restricting rules of Covid. I send my best wishes to you and your family and especially your father.
    This series of Canada Geese in flight was entertaining and enjoyable. I hope you can carry the spirit of it with you as you move forward in these trying days.

  11. Donna, keeping your Dad in prayer. Lord God, continue to watch over Donna’s Dad as he heals and regains strength. Bless the medical staff for their dedicated service, and watch over them as well as the rest of this family.

  12. Sending good thoughts for your dad. It’s good the geese provide a bit of a break for you.
    Wishing a happy landing to all….. 🙏🥰🙏

  13. How did I manage to miss this? Sending belated warm, healing thoughts for your dads. My late husband died of sepsis… I so very much feel for what you must be going through!!! 💞🙏

  14. So sorry to hear about your Dad. I hope by the time you see this he is all better. No apologies are necessary when missing a day or even days of posting. Blogging should be fun for you and not feel like an obligation.
