While strolling along Deer Lake the next bird I was able to identify was the easily identifiable Canada Goose. Well actually I did see a bunch of Seagulls as well, but I’m still trying to figure out specific Seagull identifications, a little challenging for me.
There was one Canada Goose hanging out on the edge of the lake, like he was debating whether to take a dip in the chilly waters..
The Canada Goose is extremely common in the Lower Mainland. There’s a flock that lives close to our place, so we often see them flying overhead in their common V formation or grazing on the grass at the school yard. In fact last year one goose family would cause little traffic jams at the elementary school as they would insist on casually crossing the road (2 Geese and about 8 of their goslings) right at the morning drop off time.
This time of year I’m always anxious for spring, not just because of flowers blooming and everything turning green, but can’t wait to see some darling little goslings!
