A winter walk in the Chicago Botanical Gardens. The Mallards and the Canadian Geese spend the winter with us, locating wherever there is open water. There were plenty of them in the water ways when we were there, because it has been unseasonably warm.
Geese are wonderful birds and everyone loves them as long as they don't poop on the grass ... Then they are considered a nuisance. The Gardens have reached a compromise ... the geese can stay if they stay in the water where there is plenty for them to eat, but if they get on the grass, they are greeted by Border Collies who herd them back to the water. I love it!
The End :)
