Canada Geese in the Snow

Canada Geese and Snow

Our subdivision has a nature trail that circles around three connected ponds that border a small stream. I have avoided checking it out over the last year and half due to neighborhood stories about snakes. This week’s record setting weather made me feel pretty safe in that department and with the roads still unsafe to my favorite spots away I went!

I came upon about 30 Canada Geese quietly hanging around in one of the ponds in small groups. The sun was shining and the temperature was hovering just above freezing.

Who knows what a bird might think about this unexpected turn of events, but these Geese seemed to be managing. There are Canada Geese here year round so it’s impossible to know if they are locals or migratory, in which case they might not be that surprised.
