    Default"Twas the Month Before Duck Season

    'Twas the month before teal season
    and all through the barn
    not a decoy had been deployed yet
    but who gives a darn

    When out near the West pond
    there arose such a clatter
    I got down from the tractor
    to see what was the matter

    Wings all fixed and
    landing over a tree top
    the sight of those honkers
    made my heart nearly stop

    Several have been here
    many a time before
    but this many was a new record
    and hopefully what's in store

    Carol came out with the camera
    she heard and saw them too
    they are a sight to behold
    and we wanted to share them with you.

    The older dawgs are excited
    Cappy and Remi knew what they were
    and the young pup's excited too
    he'll soon learn why, that's for sure.









    Didn't take them long after landing to get out of the water and sample the fresh green grass on the shoreline. Then they spotted the feeder not far away and either the older regular visitors led the new ones there, or these Honkers are really tuned in on what a feeder looks like!

    BTW ... check the pair off a little to the left by their selves, and again in the last pic. The larger of the two (which I assumed is a gander) appears to be a Spec/Canada cross. Look at the orange legs and feet, and also his cheek patches that are a dirty gray rather than bright white.

    What a lovely sight! The poem is great. Do the geese venture very far onto the lawn other than to the feeder?

    We have a pair of Canada Geese that nest near to one of our mental health units and they practically take over the road when their chicks are mobile, begging as it were at the various buildings on the site and as they are mostly residential, it works and they have little fear of the people.
