Last year I posted what had happen to this tree. While sitting on my porch I was able to get this picture of both of them. They have only been back a few more times. I think maybe they have a nest close by. I don’t know. The woods are full of trees for them. I think the woodpecker is a beautiful bird. That is a lot of work on that tree to get some food.
From one day to the next afternoon, our geese and the eggs were gone. We were shocked and clueless. There was no sign of broken eggs, feathers or anything. They were just gone. It has been hard for me to post this. But yes, I had become attached.
I am not a camera professional and my pictures are not always clear and crisp. The settings I leave to the camera. Regardless, I really had fun this morning taking pictures of these bluebirds. I noticed that the male would fly off with the female and come back with her at the same time. He would then sit on the outside as she entered the house. I’m sure she was feeding the little baby bluebirds.
The parents are awaiting the day and I know this mother will be glad to get out of this hot sun. I think the goslings should hatch sometime during this next week.
I was so excited when I saw these two Canadian geese on this lake.
At my age, I still get excited and thrilled to watch wildlife go through the process of the incubation period, watching the eggs hatch and the goslings (in this case) emerge.
The gander is always close by keeping watch over his family.
