Honk If You Love Spring

We are enjoying some much needed
warmer temperatures
here on the central plains....

The geese have 
been coming,
that's a sure sign
of more warm weather to come

 At times our skies
are peppered with geese....

 You can tell there must
be some open water near by
when you see them in numbers like this

A few of them must get
fooled by the ice...see him scolding the other one
for landing on hard ice...

what are we supposed to do here????

 and then it's up and off
to another corn field
to sit and wait
(and eat)
for more water to open up

it is a magical site to see so many
huge birds fly around each other
and not crash!

My guess is they have a 
"No Texting and Flying Policy"
in force!

and finally, thought I'd give them an artistic edge,
before I head off to my craft room...

Happy Spring Y'all,

That is the sounds I miss the most. Here in the hills, it is a rare thing for ducks or geese to fly over. Growing up on the Missouri I recall days like your photos where the sky was filled with birds. Thanks for the memories.

Great photos . . . I will be listening for them in the days ahead. More snow last night . . . but a weather promise of warmer ahead!

I see many flying overhead, but don't take any photos. Some things, you just need to experience the old fashioned way. xo

Wonderful post. Loved seeing all those geese. I bet it's amazing in real life. Reminded me of this post someone sent me of Starlings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eakKfY5aHmY

Your artistic version was pretty cool looking.
