Canadian geese are back with spring

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe other day I was walking our gravel road and I could see in the distance some geese that had landed in a field puddle of water. I knew that they would fly away when I got closer so I zoomed in with my camera on them.   Indeed, they took flight against the cold north wind to some other place where there was icy water.

This afternoon when I took my walk along the same gravel road, I could see the big fox or small coyote 1/4 of a mile away.  He bolted off over this same field and ran for all he was worth for about a half of a mile or more.  I was amazed at how fast it ran on the ice and snow.  I had seen him earlier in our woods the other morning, he has taken care of the rabbit population.  He doesn’t need to be afraid of me, I am happy we have less rabbits to eat our vegetable garden once that is planted and growing.

I saw my first robin the other day, so you KNOW it is spring but the temps have been only in the teens so not a good time for birds to be back yet.  The Canadian geese can handle it as they continue their travels to colder Canada…the woodpeckers and finches are waiting for more warmth. As are we…it doesn’t ever seem like we will EVER have summer. The forecast is for blizzard conditions on Easter Day.  My Mom refuses to believe it will happen. We will see what comes what may…perhaps it WILL be May when we have spring!

Happy Easter whether the SON shines or not!
