The Canada Goose has become a familiar sight around here. When I was growing up, we would see those huge "V" formations in the sky in spring and again in fall, but rarely did we see the geese during the summer. Now they are everywhere, even in busy cities. If they have water and a place to make a nest, they will make themselves at home.
To me those first goose calls are a sign that spring is right around the corner.
Some folks don't like them, and I will agree, they leave a mess wherever they are, but I think there is something beautiful about them.
I could not see a nest here, but I do think it was probably hidden in the reeds.
Upon landing, there is nothing better than to stretch out those powerful wings.
I enjoy watching this, and of course capturing it with my camera.
I am not sure if this was supposed to be a nesting platform, but these two used it as a place to relax.
