No Goslings

17 Aug

It had been long enough that I finally had to clear out the goose’s nest.  She didn’t need to keep sitting on eggs that were never going to hatch.

She’s been enjoying the pool.

The old gander seems happy to have her for company again.  I hope he makes it through the winter and she can hatch herself some company next year.

In other bird news, I can’t really tell the two peacocks apart anymore because they’ve lost their feathers.

I have been gathering some of them up because all of their feathers, not just the famous eye tail feathers are pretty.

Here’s a bonus of Nugget, just because I’m happy he’s a nice rooster.

And I might have more bird news soon…

    Enjoyed seeing pictures of your bird family. Goose/gander pictures are okay but I steer clear in person. My brother used to have one whose favorite pastime seemed to be following people around and trying to pinch them in the butt. I hated that gander!

      This gander is pretty mellow. He and his other two gander buddies used to sneak up on goat kids and “goose” them. They were ornery. He’s too old for that stuff now.

    I’m glad your old gander is more gentle now than when he was younger! Sorry about the lack of live goslings. That would have been so neat. The peacocks are beautiful, even without their plumes. And Nugget is always beautiful, too!
