A greylag goose lands on a snowy bank. More geese swim in a canal behind.

Since we couldn't go out earlier in the day, Kengo and I went to the George H. Sparks reservoir in GA, USA close to sunset. It's amazing how #autumn colors are still entertaining us.

Next time you see a flock of Canada Geese, look carefully and you might find a Cackling Goose (Branta hutchinsii) or three.

They're significantly smaller than their larger cousins, and have a higher-pitched call.

On my walk around the lake this group were blocking the path.
In two minds whether to turn around or not, I opted for a slight detour onto the grass off to the side of the path.
There were a few wary sideways glances from them and me I can tell you.

#Photography #Photo #Birds #Wildlife #Geese

A group of fifty or more geese are standing on the edge of a lake. There are two types of geese gathered here. They stand on the grassy lake edge, which is covered in autumn leaves, and spread up the bank and across the paved pathway. Each one is warily looking at the photographer who wants to continue his walk around the lake but is not entirely sure if the geese will approve.
The grassy edge of a lake with a clear blue sky reflecting on the lake making it look equally blue and vibrant. Two different types of geese and a few other water birds are all looking towards the camera. The few trees at the waters edge have lost all their leaves which scatter the ground.

A Greater White-fronted Goose, normally found in the western half of North America, and uncommon in our area.

#waterfowl #geese

"A medium-sized, heavy-bodied goose with a small bill, thick legs, and a short neck. Adults are mostly brown with white feathering around the base of a pinkish-orange bill. Black barring marks the belly and the undertail is white. In flight a white "U" at the base of the tail is visible. At rest, a thin white line stretches across their sides. Juveniles lack the belly banding and white feathering around the bill. Both juveniles and adults have orangish legs." (AllAboutBirds).

No, you didn't see it, it's gone.
I cut it down so you could see my invisible geese, that were screaming in the first light.. well, you can't see them, Silly, they're invisible.. #LISTEN do you hear them?
Stop looking for the tree. There's no tree, see? And you don't see, #geese.
But they see you, sitting invisible on the sea, silently judging us.

Changed the batteries in my temperature sensor in the pasture today. It has a 3D printed radiation shield around it made out of PETG and it's been hanging in the apple tree there for 4 years. I modified one I found to hold my existing 433 mhz sensor. This one just feeds the indoor unit and not my weewx station and is part of the daily recorded weather on the calendar.

Goose approved!

#3dprinting #geese #wx #weewx

A photo of a 3D printed raditation shield for a temperature sensor hanging in an apple tree. It is white and consists of 6 pieces with a rectangle center to hold the sensor, a top cover that has the sockets for the three threaded rods, and a base that has standoffs for the rods, a center hole if you were to mount it on a pole, and nuts which have printed thumb screw covers.

It hangs from green braided polyester cord that loops around all three rod sockets in the top and then come together above it where a single strand is used to attach it to a tree limb by looping it over a small dead branch and over the top of a living limb to prevent strangulation of a part of the tree.
Two white male pilgrim geese. They have gray markings on their wing tips and below their wings on the side near their legs. They have blue eyes.

I used to name them, Starting in 2008, with Gail and Gordon, I'm not sure if the original pair is still alive, and they have been prolific and several large flocks of 20-30 #Geese each, from the original parents.

Except this one. She's lost her mate, even the three goslings she raised, have moved on. And she sits alone. On a rock, behind my truck, or hiding in the weeds. How long do they mourn, I wonder. Has she become sick? Outcast? Lonely #Goose #Nature #Birds #Ocean

While I'm posting baby birds, I found this family of Greylag Geese in the Tamar Island Wetlands too. According to my bird guides, they're not even meant to be in this state, but they are migratory, so here we are (or possibly they're escaped domesticated birds?)

Well, hello! Looks like I ought to do an #introduction here.

Hi! I'm Adam. I recently drifted into the Fediverse with the Great
#RedditMigration of July 2023. I've already dabbled with Mastodon and kBin. Now I'm dipping my toes into Calkey.

I'm originally from
#Iowa but live in #Wisconsin now. Like, far #northernwisconsin.

My wife and I have a tiny farm where we have a small
#garden and are mob-ruled by our flock of #chickens, #ducks, and #geese. We've also employed the help of the tiniest herd of tiny Nigerian Dwarf #goats to help us fight back some of the invasive honeysuckle and buckthorn that seems to have taken over our little homestead.

We also have two
#cats, two #dogs, and a very independent, "wild" #rabbit that my wife actually rescued from a food bank garden.

My interests include, but are not limited to;

Migrating Canadian geese take a late October dinner break on a secluded little cove at the lake while the two outside geese stand lookout (swim lookout?).

Standing on the shore of a small cove on a large lake. A narrow peninsula is maybe 50 feet away across the water. It is covered with tall trees, as is a second peninsula beyond to the right across a small channel of water. These two peninsulas form the cove. There are a few hemlocks on the peninsulas, the rest of the trees are hardwoods that have lost most of their leaves. Those that remain are brick red or golden brown past peak colors. A gaggle of ten geese is swimming on the cove. Eight of them are feeding, their heads below the water. The two geese on the right and left are keeping watch for danger. A bright golden sun about to set burns through the trees on the left. The sky is a pale gray blue.

Canada Geese are such a beautiful waterfowl and fortunately for us, we have many of them that have chosen to make Florida their year-round home. No migration for these avians. These three were down by the lake near my home when I photographed them. Two were sipping as one stood guard.

I started working with Alaska Dept Fish & Game to surgically place trackers in emperor geese in 2019. Since then, we've implanted 189 over 8 different trips, mostly to remote areas with no electricity. It's been a fun challenge with a lot of hard work by many people. Our survival rates have been phenomenal. The data collected has already taught biologists a lot about this remote species, helping to make informed decisions for conservation and for management of an important food resource for Alaska natives. Slowly, the transmitters that were designed to last 18-24 months are starting to blink off after almost 4 years of faithful service. Seeing those dots on a map, moving around, living their lives has been really cool. It's a little sad to lose touch but they've more than "earned" the chance to live the rest of their lives in privacy and peace, swallowed up in a vast wilderness where they rarely see humans. Good luck to them!
