I love watching geese fly overhead. You can hear their wings... their strengthDefying gravity with every beat Gaining speed and altitude as they pass Calling one to the other Gathering together... in perfect formation.They work together, sharing the leadFlying as one.
These are a first for me and I'm thrilled. I'm not familiar with most water birds. I hope to learn more about waterfowl. For instance, I believe these are Lesser Scaup ducks. I reasoned they are found in freshwater as compared to the Greater Scaup which are found in saltwater.
If anyone happens to know or can confirm my novice 'deduction' (pun intended) it would be appreciated.
I feel quite happy with the results, considering they moved within range of my lens. Linking to:Our World Tuesday
We're under a Snowfall Watch, expecting another 25cm (9.5 inches) of snow and drifting snow. So I doubt I'll be going out much except for puppy requirements and wood retrieval for the wood stove.
Have a great day. Linking to:Weekly Top Shot | Best Posts of the Week | Camera Critters
Did you'all see the amount of snow? Never-mind you weren't here... but it was huge! I almost called the Army in to clear out this place so we could find some food. The landowners are pretty good. S/he put stuff out to eat and clear paths. There are trees everywhere and some bird houses scattered around too. I prefer, well actually the Misses prefers the hollow tree we call home.
The day after the snow party, we were blessed with a wee bit more of the fluffy white stuff. So out the snow-thrower came and some paths were cleared, but there is more to do. My bird friends returned and enjoyed some wholesome goodness. The hawk flew in for wholesome goodness too... a meaty Mourning Dove.
Ta for now. Hope you find your way here again. We always enjoy your company.
