Canada Geese just seem to take cold weather in stride. There is a resident small group of about eight Canada Geese that are here often. These geese likely are the same birds that were hatched here in May, 2012. The geese were here this past weekend when I took these pictures from my living room window. It was very cold here and snowed off and on. The snow would sublimate or melt and then more snow would fall. Sometimes the grass would be green and sometimes there was a crust of the white stuff. The temperature was just at freezing almost all day.
The geese did not seem to mind the snow but I do think that they did not appreciate the cold winds that blew on Saturday afternoon here. I know I did not enjoy it at all! The geese are grain and plant eating birds. They love new grass and will graze on lawns or pastures to eat that newly grown grass. By the way, it is raining heavily today and snow is expected tonight and tomorrow. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
