Canada Geese: Winter Photos

January 30, 2013

Canada Geese are one of those species that have learned to live comfortably with humans. Humans who step in “goose poop” or who lose crops to these birds may not agree with the adjective “comfortable”, however.

Geese can also be quite aggressive when they are defending themselves and their young or when pursuing some perceived threat. I have a friend who was mugged by a flying Canada Goose as she was biking and many a dog has been taught a lesson on manners by an irate goose.  But they sure are pretty.

Geese can be counted upon to provide interesting moments – and picturesque photos – on winter walks. I guess I have a sneaky affection for geese – even if I don’t totally trust them! Enjoy the photos!

    I’ve never been fond of these geese – I’ve been chased by two and bitten by one (while feeding it cheerios) – but they sure are pretty. Nice pictures 🙂 I like the ones where the two are flying, and when they’re in the fog.

  2. A friend of mine said it best: a pair of geese are beautiful; a family of geese is cute; a flock of geese (on your lawn) is a nuisance.
