The Canada Geese Stopped By ~

A breeding pair of wild Canada Geese made their
designated rest stop in our pond this morning....



I was outside at the time letting our free-ranged ducks and chickens out of the barn when I spotted them. The female was very vocal when she saw me and our border collie. At that point, I thought they would fly away, but they didn't. They are sharing the pond with our ducks, Lucky and Squirt....


I managed to get a bit closer....


They swim by the rest of the ducks and chickens....


And, we cannot forget about Skittles....
he is our very friendly Barred Rock rooster!!


And there they go.... they will make their way to their nesting area and hopefully have a successful brood in about a month....
