Monday critter report

 Maybe a Common Gallinule or maybe a Coot, and a Canada Goose....

 A walk around the lake at about 3 o'clock on Saturday.  Lots of hungry geese are out.

 This one took off just as I got near...flying after another one that's barely visible center of the photo.

 The wild white ducks.  Some are breeding with the Mallards, so probably are not geese.

I saw 3 mallards swimming around in the middle of the lake. They all dived and disappeared for the count of 15 seconds, and when they returned to the surface one male was trying to mount another.  I've never seen anything like it. Couldn't tell for sure that the one practically underwater was female...but hey, they're ducks!

 My sad little lone goose on the dam was not alone today.  There's another pair that aren't exactly "with him."

 There really are 2 geese in this shot...but you may have to use your imagination so you don't think it's a 2 headed goose.

Lonely dam goose still shows something amiss with his wing feathers.


  1. What a wonderful place you have to enjoy.

  2. Hello, it is a pretty spot for a walk. Love the lake view and all the birds.
    Happy Monday, enjoy your day! Wishing you a happy new week!

  3. You certainly have a nice place to walk. I love seeing all of the birds, but still feeling sorry for the lonely dam goose!
