Tuesday morning was cool but peaceful at the pond. Then overhead...we heard Canada geese flying southward below the clouds. What a racket they were making!
They circled over the southern end of the pond, glided in to a few inches above the water and then...
The geese didn't appear to worry about the temperature, which was low enough for snow to stick to the trees but not so frigid that ice formed on the water. (My feet are feeling chilly as I think about the geese paddling around,)
Perhaps these fowl plan to winter here (a few do). Or maybe the pond was just a stopover, a brief morning bathing area before heading to "balmy" Lake Ontario. Brrrr.
