I went to the park in the early morning for a much needed walk. All of a sudden this big beautiful bird appeared and landed in front of me. It was awesome; it was so close. I stood there smiling and just admiring it. It looked right at me and didn't even get bothered at all by having its picture taken. Good morning to you too lovely birdie. ;)

This charming fellow I named "Charlie", because he was a frequent visitor on the beach area where I stayed on Anna Maria Island, Florida. He was quite a character, following me up from the beach to the lawn area in front of our residence and waiting for a tidbit or two. His favourite treats? Cooked hot dogs or tender pieces of chicken!
I have a pond in my back yard which attracts wildlife. A pair of Canadian geese showed up. They were grazing on the green grass near the edge of the pond. Food is scarce right now with all the snow on the ground. The winter season just keeps lingering on making it a challenge for spring time arrivals in the area.
These snowy egrets and Canadian geese seemed to be having a conference, as they were in the same place an hour later when I drove back by. The geese were letting themselves be heard while swimming back and forth in front of the Egrets.
I found him injured in my balcony and nursed him. Now he stays with us on most days. He flies out at times but generally returns to us.
I noticed a baby bird that had just left the nest and was learning to fly. So cute!
Imagine a glass prism that breaks up light into all colors of the spectrum. Now imagine a glass prism that reflects light in only shades of blue.
Late afternoon, and our feathered friends know it is feeding time. Such beautiful creatures, each one, even the common or greys. And how interesting to note which varieties appear with variations in food - bread, seed, and various fruit types.
My children and I saw these goslings by the river yesterday afternoon. I couldn't get an exact count, but there were about 25-30 of them.
Snow geese breed from late May to mid August, but they leave their nesting areas and spend more than half the year on their migration to-and-from warmer wintering areas.
This little darling sits atop what appears to be a light and greets each person who walks through the doors of the emergency room. All the nurses loved it! I hope they let this little one stay here, since she has been here the whole time I have been staying here in the hospital with my mom.

I was taking pictures of shore birds and was lucky enough to get this one catching his dinner for the day.
They are not MY pets but they really love to see me because I go to the river each day and feed them. We named them Paris and France because they seem so elegant in the water! Me and my children go there each day to feed them! Enjoy, they are too sweet!
We taught the babies, Paris and France how to catch! When you throw the food, they have learned if we snap our fingers, they will watch and catch it (the bread) before it ever gets to the water!

Feed them rolled oats, not a lot of bread, it's to much dough for them. Or cut corn off the cob and feed them corn. Give them lettuce pieces, even clover. Geese eat a lot of greens, but not the bread. I have geese and they are cute, (07/20/2007)
