Another Cold Day at the Lake



The mallard ducks and several dozen geese stay here year-round. Flocks of Canada Geese join them on days like today, perhaps avoiding the snow storm that blanketed another part of the region. Hundreds of geese flew in and out yesterday and today! For a while, the pond within the lake got crowded. The geese and most ducks (but not Muscovy ducks) like to swim on the water or else stand on the ice close to the water.

  2. Linda,

    I love the second photo of the geese and ducks on the semi-frozen lake. I always shiver when I see birds on the water. I know God created them to handle an environment that man can not in the winter but still it makes me go, "Brrr" every time. lol That's a very neat photo! :) I think I'll stay indoors where it's warm today.

  5. As long as they've got some open water, they're happy.

  7. Great pictures! I'm cold just looking at them. I especially like the first one of them in flight.

  8. A lovely selection of photographs.
    I think my favourite is your first one of them in flight.

    All the best Jan
