Geese sometimes get a bad rap. They have a reputation for being mean. They can be, but usually it’s during the mating season and they are protecting their turf, their nests, and their eggs. Most of the time, they are pretty easy to get along with.
They really do enjoy the pools of water that I give them.
As soon as one gets out,
there’s another waiting to get in.
I personally think they are beautiful birds sitting so serenly in their wading pool.
Of course, some geese get a bit more carried away.
You’ll get wet if you stand too close. When I see them flailing around in that tiny pool, it really makes me wish I had something better for them to swim and play in.
In the back forty, there is a tiny little drainage ditch that carries water onto my property.
After a short distance, it widens out into a fairly deep channel.
It makes a small pool before it goes underground into the tile.
I can only imagine how much they would like to play here, especially if we made that little pool into a little pond. Maybe someday.
