One of my favorite sights of spring is seeing a mother goose protecting her babies under her wing on a cool morning. It's amazing how many babies she can fit under her body. The daddy goose is always standing right next to her, guarding them all.

It's that time of year again when we see the geese in our yard bring their new babies to show off. We live right on the river so we get a front row seat. They come up on our lawn and eat grass so they feel very protected here and we see the same families year after year, from babies to grownups.

I took this photo of a line of geese thinking they looked like a lineup for a football team, and when I looked at it on the computer it looked more like a beautiful Monet watercolor painting.

Hubby, Gary, took this at the little pond near our house! Exercise anyone?!
Unfortunately many areas of the country this summer have experienced heavy smoke from wildfires. I live on a river where many geese live and for a while, I would see them every morning walking up the road in single file.

I captured this picture of four geese on Ft. Loudon Lake while out for a day of fishing this past weekend. There were about 50 geese swimming within about 50 yards from us at any given time.
My Grandson and I took a walk and whom did we see?
Six smiling geese walking right next to him and me!

Purists technically would always call them simply 'Canada' geese. Don't ask me why. In NE Ohio they are known as manure manufacturing pests. (06/09/2010)
This picture was taken this past winter at a beautiful little pond a block from my home. The birds don't seem to mind the ice in the water. So many beautiful creatures that it's sad to see them fly off when the temperatures warm.
I may be in the minority, but I consider the sound of Canadian geese on the wing one of the most beautiful sounds in the world. (05/16/2010)
Geese go a walking! My Grandson was looking out the window and he saw 4 geese go a walking right down the middle of our street. He counted "one, two, three, four, is there any more?"

Your grandson is a smart boy and witty! Come on over the river to Fort Erie and he can learn all his numbers. There's tons of geese! (09/15/2009)
They may not sound as beautiful to others, but I always found their dissonant honking magical. Thanks for sharing. (09/17/2009)
I caught this picture feeding some Canadian Geese at a small pond near my son's apartment complex.
I caught these Canada Geese on camera last October, resting before continuing their journey south for the winter. I wonder how many ended up on Thanksgiving and Christmas tables?
