We had eleven wild Canadian geese splash down on our pond early last Friday morning.
They quickly found some of the lush green grass surrounding the water.
How did our chickens, ducks and geese react to these visitors? They went into hiding.
But then it wasn't too long before some of them came out into the open to check the visitors out. But they didn't get too close trying to act quite nonchalant.
"Who the heck do you think those guys are, Skidmore?"
Fairly soon the ducks were swimming right alongside the Canadian geese, but our geese still weren't that sure of the whole situation.
In a bit the Canadian geese came right up into the yard . . .
. . . and seemed to make themselves at home.
During afternoon siesta time when we frequently see our ducks and geese hunkered down taking a nap in the sunshine, we looked out to see the Canadian geese doing the same.
Papa Pea went out to do afternoon chores and was surprised that the visitors didn't seem a bit skittish to have him in close proximity.
We wouldn't have minded if they'd stayed around longer, but they took to the wing and flew off in the late afternoon. Come again!
