Can you tell what this is?

How about now?

Lucy finally hatched (at least) a gosling.

I’m very happy for her.

If you don’t think these are wild birds, here’s what was hissing at me the whole time I was trying to take a picture of the baby.

They are very protective parents.  But if those are not wild enough birds for you, here is a trio of barn swallows.

The bluebird couple was still out in pasture.

I hope they will have a nest out there!

    Geese can be very testy. I have been bitten. Our bluebirds have just gotten back. They are so pretty

      They really are fierce when they have little ones, and Lucy is the meanest.

    Your pics are always so beautiful. You should make a calendar to sell with your soaps, lotions, and candles!

      I actually do have a calendar. I’ve been making them for about six years now. I’ll reveal the 2017 calendar this fall.

      They are adorable little ones. Too bad they get nasty when they grow up.

    Hello, the gosling is adorable. Lucy and dad look very protective. Enjoy your day and week ahead!

      The geese are very protective parents.

    That baby is sooo cute! Thanks for sharing with us! I live in Fl and have feeder outside my window and see soooo many birds, but none in nest…thanks again!

      I’ve been walking past Lucy in the feed bunk for the last month just waiting for this!

    Adorable wee duckling! So happy to see that this morning.

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 7:54 pm #

      Yes! There is nothing more adorable than a gosling.

  7. Pondside April 27, 2016 at 8:20 pm #

    They are so sweet. This brought back such lovely memories for me of the many ducklings hatched at Pondside House.

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 7:56 pm #

      Yes. The the ducks are much nicer parents. I don’t think they ever tried attacking me the way the geese do.

    I know geese can be ornery. My sweet mother-in-law had some on their farm. I stayed away from them! The little gosling is cute!

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 7:57 pm #

      Lucy is the fiercest protective mom. Really.

    What a great little face sticking out from under the mother goose. One day I going to see a blue bird for real – and I suspect I will get very excited!

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne

      The bluebirds are a beautiful sight. The goslings are the cutest!

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 8:00 pm #

      Thanks. It was pure luck!

    Absolutely adorable! Never mess with a mother goose:)

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 8:01 pm #

      That’s for sure!

      I was very happy for her.
