Geese

“You guys are OK?
“Really, Martha, we know more about being geese than you ever will.”
“You’re right.”
“Thanks for caring, though.”

Bear and I took an early jaunt out to the Refuge before the snow could melt. It was paradisal. So strange on a snowy morning to hear the songs of meadowlarks. I got very close to one as he perched on a somewhat taller than average little tree.

Only a few crane tourists. The cranes have diminished in numbers but are still here. I saw two. The cattle are very busy with birthing and there are small calves everywhere. As I drove by a farm a cow was straining to give birth.

“Thanks, Martha.”

  1. A pair of geese use one of the golf course ponds as their nesting place (four years and counting). Whenever I see them I can’t help but sing “Oh, Canada.” They seem to like it.
