The Canada Geese are back… their loud bark could be heard from the road as I drove up to Mud Lake I heard them bickering and calling out to each other.

For those of you who know this conservation area, you know how congested it can get (with humans) today it wasn’t too bad.. it was a beautiful day, the humans were spaced out, except for a couple that were watching an owl sleep, it was mostly walk by, nod, and keep going … at the bridge tho’ I met a fellow visitor who had some seed in his hand…

The birds seemed to know he was “carrying”… two of them a male and female actually stalked us, so they could get to him.. then they boldly stood and waited for him to “perform”.. I’d swear they were demanding a toll for crossing the bridge. LOL knowing they can deliver a mean bite, I stood very still while they assessed me and then moved along.

It is mating season, believe me you have never heard a demanding aggressive bird until you hear a Canada Goose defending its turf. They race across the ice, necks extended and give off the most abusive sound. I was glad I was an observer and far from the angry male …

patiently waiting while her mate chased the offending bird that dared come too close.

It was with reluctance that I left the area … there was just so much to see… the balmy weather was intoxicating – the forecast is for colder weather .. and snow later.. The birds have settled in.. another trip once the ice is gone will bring a totally different feel, and different birds.

A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

peek a boo

I see you looking back at me, I was thrilled you didn’t fly away

Free yourself from being overly attached. Overthinking hinders ideas and actions.

Perfect Liberty 2021.22

I took today as a ME day … I spent the day visiting with nature, even drove out to Shirley’s Bay and the Firing Range, it had been a very long time, it was good to revisit, and reacquaint myself with places I haven’t been to in years, now I can plan to go again. Sometimes we do the same things over and over .. visit the same places.. there is just so much more to explore and discover. A big thank you to my friends who are encouraging and being supportive. Actually to each and everyone of you… you inspire me, I appreciate you.

Always and forever

busy grooming

I had already realized that my Nikon was no longer going to perform having received the battery tired message. These were taken with my cell phone. I tried to capture him with his face towards me, but he just wouldn’t stop his grooming.

This duck was another one who visited, he actually started to come up to me, then the squirrel intruded. I possibly insulted him calling him a bird, and not recognizing he was a duck. I’ve never had occasion to call or converse with a duck before !!

The birds/ducks were all over the place today, I should have gotten there earlier, I would have had more time, as it was I only got to explore on the other side of the road, not the part of Mud Lake I had been on before.

This side of the road the walking is more difficult, a good pair of hiking boots would have been best.
paths were rugged, rocky and wound up and down the landscape. I’lll add it was cold today, there were other photographers everywhere.
