Protective Parents

We’re here at the Biggest Week in American Birding this week and I’ll be posting some pictures as I have time to get them uploaded from the camera. I took almost 500 pictures on our first day today and am already overwhelmed. But in a good way!

Most of the Canada Geese have babies now. This pair shepherded their tiny brood across a canal at Magee Marsh today. The babies remind me of that carnival game with little rubber ducks floating in a circular moat — remember that? So adorable!

    The posture of the parents’ necks suggest “keep your distance”! Body language is quite understandable!

    I’m glad you’re having a great time. 500 photos? You and I both know that is “normal”, really. I can go to the river and come back with 300 photos. Living in the digital age is awesome! I can’t wait to see more of your work!
