Hallelujah, they're back...

There are not many of them about yet, and there is certainly not much for them to eat at the moment, but the first flocks of Canada geese have arrived and taken up residence in windswept farm fields and along the river.

At sunset a day or two ago, the long "v" shapes of returning skeins trailed across the sky, magnificently silhouetted against the setting sun and drifting clouds, and their homecoming songs could be heard for quite a distance.

It rained steadily through the night, and it is raining here again this morning, but that doesn't matter a fig or a twitter or a hoot - the great geese are home again, and that means warmer, brighter times are on their way.

:-) A sure sign of the seasons' changing.

Yeay! I sent them just for you, my friend. LOL :):):) There are fewer here, so they must be in migration, although we still have them all year long. Enjoy your feathered friends. Glad they gladdened your day.

One of the things I appreciate about Beyond the Fields We Know, are seasonal reports of migration of Canadian greese. This makes me want to make a trip to Bosque del Apache, in New Mexico.

As they left our river I did remind them to wave a wing in your direction when they flew over. I hope at least one remembered.
