Bird D'Pot and Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday

I am linking to Anni's Bird D'Pot and also Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday. You can find Anni here and Stewart here.


We visited Brookside Garden in Wheaton, Maryland last Saturday.  Click here for more information on the Garden. The Canada Geese were pairing up and getting territorial chasing off any encroaching suitors. They noisily charged the competition if they got too close.


Is she smiling?

Finally, I think Spring has sprung.

  1. Hi Denise, I read another blog post yesterday showing the Canada Geese males spreading their wings --trying to get attention of the females.... SO --maybe your Geese that you saw were doing that instead of being territorial... ????? Who knows!!!

    Great photos.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  5. The wildlife certainly has it's own language when courting...lol. Love the new header, Denise.

    You have spring? Ours is yet to arrive. It is bitterly cold and the snow is still threatening to fall.

  7. Interesting! I did not know they did this. I thought they mated for life and yearly wooing was omitted from their lives.

  8. Hi Denise...I haven't heard or seen any Canadian geese yet hopefully soon!
    Looks like it's that time of year..romance and squabbling is just fine if it means Spring is here ; )

  9. The Canadas are good looking beasts but as you observed Denise they can be too aggressive, chasing off every other species.

  10. They are lovely birds to see Denise... unfortunately some places in the UK consider them pests.
