Goose Encore

gray goose

This is not the first time I've shared photos of geese and I'm sure it won't be the last. When you live on a lake, you see geese every day. They are fun to watch, although I sometimes chase them away from the bird feeders. Not that they rob the feeders, but the squirrels knock a lot of seed on the ground and I like to see songbirds eating it, not geese.

Our geese are already well-fed by one of our neighbors and by visiting children.  The graylag geese and their white cousins look rather plump.


  1. Great pictures! We see Canadian Geese around here quite often-mostly flying through the air or in fields or around ponds. They are fun to watch.

  2. they're cute, but i know they can be messy and noisy, too. :)

  3. What kind of cute bathing!!!

  4. wow, nice, the one in the first photo seems to be a fat, meaty one....:)

  5. The goose in your first picture certainly looks as if he is taking a bow.
