Nature Walks – Enjoying the Sunshine

Yet another warm sunny day, with the sun shining brightly. And it’s a shorts and T-shirt kind of day. That’s today. Sunday, we are expecting more snow. Go figure! But, I took advantage of the sunshine today, as I love to do. A lot of my furried and feather friends were out enjoying the sunshine too.

Duck, duck goose.

There was a hooded merganser.

The ring-necked ducks.

And the geese.

There are actually two types of geese here. The differences between the two are very, very subtle. One is the Canadian goose, and the other is a cackling goose. Can you see the differences? The Canadians are bigger and have longer necks, with a more pointed beak. The cacklings are smaller and rounder, with shorter necks and more snubbed beaks. The cacklings must be confused by this warmer weather. Usually we only get them in the summer months.

This is a Canadian.

Then there were the squirrels out enjoying their day. One was playing in the grass.

And another one was up a tree.

We can’t forget about the bunnies. They were out too.

I’m all hopped out. I need a rest.

It’s a bright sunny day. Enjoy the sunshine.

  1. I see the Canadian Goose pics, amd a part of me grows sad. I myself am in Alberta Canada, and many of them are gone away where it will be warmer. I will be happy when I hear them again, because that means warm weather :). Them birdies are bigguns. They have no fear either and can often be spotted just minding their own business in an alley. No fear. We have a goose Park here, in Edmonton so we get quite a few and the geese at the park can be savage if you bring them food. Like seagulls, but taller, bigger and fearless.
