My goal for the next few days or weeks is to find and photograph the various kinds of waterfowl that inhabit Lake Glenville or the surrounding small ponds. Yesterday I saw Mallards and Redheads, photos coming soon.
Today I took a walk along the lake because I could see two Canada Geese standing near the shore. As I got closer, trying to get a good camera shot, I heard the wing beats of 20 geese I flushed out of a tree right at the water’s edge. I spent the next few seconds snapping pictures as fast as I could as they flew overhead to land a few hundred yards out on the lake.
Canada geese mate for life. Nesting on the ground usually in tall grasses or marshy area, the goose incubates the 4-7 eggs while the proud father-to-be guards the nest. I am hoping to add some gosling photos in the next few months. So keep checking back.
