Wordless Wednesday - Cackling Geese
I have been doing research this morning trying to figure out what the geese are outside my window on the lake. They are VERY LOUD honkers!! I actually really like it. It's just funny when it gets quiet all I can hear is constant honking. It is very distinct.
From what I can tell, they are Canadian Geese, called Cackling Geese. How very appropriate.
I noticed this morning that the lake looks different and realized that it is because half of it has frozen. These geese don't seem to mind. It also occurred to me this morning, I wonder how long they will reside here? Will they fly somewhere else for the winter because it is already winter, to me?

I love to watch them. I wonder though, if they are all geese as I have seen these guys run for a very long distance across the top of the water.
