My Two Geese
Sometimes there are more geese that come to visit and crap all over the grass, but these two are always the first to arrive and the last to leave. A big flock of geese can cause problems with anyone's lawn, but these two are just fine with me.
You can see that when I go back there they begin doing tricks for me. I'm guessing this one is the male of the two since males of any kind seem to be the ones that like to show off the most. Females do it too, but they're more subtle about it.
He did all of this while his girlfriend laid back on the grass and watched out of one eye. I don't know why he performed this trick, but I've seen them do very similar tricks before. Maybe he was showing me how tough he was, and that he wasn't going to tolerate me getting too close. Maybe it was a welcome gesture. Either way, I decided to keep myself a short distance away.
Just as it's only really a guess as to which one is a male and which is a female, it's also only a guess that these are the same geese from years past. But I think the two guesses are good ones, just as I think the two geese are good ones. It's really kind of fun having them so close to my home... As long as they don't invite their friends over for a party!
My big announcement is coming Monday!
