Out of the Blue

The water birds around here spend varying amounts of time switching around between the nearby lake and the various ponds in the area. Today the Canada Geese have been hanging around in the pond near us. I can say this with confidence because they are making a raucous party of it, and have been honking and splashing about for hours. A lot of people dislike them for their occasional aggressiveness and their dog-like pooping, but I really enjoy their presence, noise and all. I may feel differently if I ever end up on the receiving end of a chase due to their territoriality, but I've never experienced that, so as far as I'm concerned they are welcome to enjoy as long as they please.
