Wild Bird Wednesday

Winter's Lake

The Lake is still busy at this time of year even though it has turned very cold ...
The geese stay in the water at night ... it is the safest place for them as it is impossible for their predators to reach them ...

 Canadian Geese ...

Only one pair of Mallards that I have seen ... they still come to my feeder every day.

But soon I hear a clamor and the geese take off as a group to find food ... usually in the corn fields in the area.

by nine there is nothing left but the occasional gull ... and the lazy swans (previous post)

Wild Bird Wednesday

Snoozing Swans ...

Really?  Just 10 more minutes ... okay?

And then there were three ...

Good Fences

A cold and dreary day ...
And yes, that is snow you see.  We did get a touch of it a week ago, but it fanished quickly.

Wild Bird Wednesday

A Golden Eyed Juvenile Coopers Hawk
 My usual visitor to my tree is my favorite Red Eyed, very large female.  Today, perhaps one of her offspring, also, I am assuming, a female because of her size.  Clearly hunting in the same territory, but the first time I have seen her.  Hope we will be seeing Mom again soon too :)

Here's Lookin' at ya ...

Through My Lens

One last stroll through the beautiful fall colors ...
 I took a walk with my friend in her new neighborhood and it was just delightful.  This was only a week ago, then the cold front came through, the winds blew the leaves off the trees and by Saturday we had a smattering of snow.  This morning it was 21 degrees Fahrenheit  ... Brrrrr.  And so winter begins:(

Stay Warm Everybody ...
