An early morning the other day and two large flocks of Canada Geese decided to visit the pond. They were obviously heading somewhere, and only stayed for a short while. I think I counted over fifty-five geese, honking and chattering as they landed with a splash. I walked down the hill and they looked at me as if I was intruding on their rest-stop!
The geese look so awkward as they begin to land, paddling with their feet and flapping their wings. But then they quickly settle into the water, tucking their wings back in and heads erect, regaining their composure.
Soon we may see a few more ducks and geese and leaves on the water! The leaves have begun to change color and fall off the trees. Autumn is here.
