    I know spring has come when the geese in the neighborhood are hatching their babies. This looks like two batches with one a little older than the others. They make a huge mess, but the babies are so cute!

    How cool is that.

    When I lived in Lexington, NC one fall I had a yard full of geese. It was exciting seeing them all there.

    Such a huge mess is right. You have to have rubber boots to mow the law with all their droppings :roll: Enjoy the babies because they sure grow fast and then they make big messes to :wink:

    Would you believe we have Canada geese in east Texas. There is a gaggle that lives in the big pond by the hospital in Athens, TX. My parents live about 15 miles away & some of them come to their lake. It is so cool to see them. I always thought they only lived up north. Guess they are winter Texans too. The ones at the hospital stay year round. We also have pelicans at Lake Palestine & we are at least 250 miles from the coast.

    Guess they know where they can be safe! They sure can invade a place. I hear them fly over, and see them all around the pond in the Office Parks and on the Jr. College campus! :?

    LOL -- they look awesome. Everytime I see geese, I'm reminded of the time we were looking for a house. Went into an open house and the realtor was REALLY trying hard to sell the house. She pointed out the creek right off the deck (literally, 3 feet from the deck) and how neat it was that the geese and ducks would wander around the yard (all 5 feet of that). Just then a duck walked up on the deck and left a "charm"...actually, squirted it right onto the deck and it spattered onto the sliding glass door!!! :mrgreen: Needless to say, we didn't buy that house. :roll:
