I got a couple shots of our annual honker couple - I went over to get pictures of the nest, Mom & Dad were over in the field eating when they saw me - before I could get close enough to the nest for pictures I had two 15 lb. feathered cannonballs flying 40 mph and 4 feet off the ground coming right at my head. Had to duck, Momma Goose calmed down a bit though when she saw the handful of peanuts I left next to the nest.

NAB :)

But they weren't happy about people with camera that close to their nest.



She liked the free peanuts though.

Love your description of the "incoming" parents! When we had baby crows growing up in our yard, the parents reminded me of x-wing fighters swooping in to "encourage" us to move away from wherever they'd hidden their little ones. :)

Again, Nab, your pictures are SO outstanding!!

So nice to see the parents again and know they are doing well, in spite of a this two-legged intruder, who seems to leave "gifts." However, gifts or no gift's he's still too honkin' close!!

Looking SO forward to updates!!

Love and Hugs

8 new souls on the planet today

here they are - only 6 showing but there's 8 of them under there. Mighty cute little guys. I hope to get a clip when it's time to march to the creek.

Now THAT's cuteness overload!!! What a treat that you get to see them sooooo young! We have 100 or so geese who use our 13acre pond (aka backyard!) ... and 5 or 6 pair who nest here. Some even nest in the front yard by the koi pond ... and in the vegetable garden. The only time we've seen them even close to this young was once. We missed seeing them on the 'visual yard-sweep' before we let the dogs out. Unfortunately - my Obedience Star didn't and several dogs made a B-line for baby, with screaming humans close behind. Seeker thought it was a toy (even sounded like his training toy!) - Mom/Dad Goose were NOT amused! Fortunately, human intervention caused a happy ending. Otherwise, we see them up close mostly at their "Young Chicken" stage when they are getting swimming & flying lessons.

Thanks for sharing!
