My View

4.07.2012

Bailey started barking up a storm this morning because we had a couple of visitors in the pond. We don't really want geese taking up here, but they are fun to watch.


Here is one shot, of many, through the window. The other goose was keeping watch close by. If I had opened the window they would have flown away.

Much better than snakes don't you think?

Joining Weekly Top Shot.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  2. No you do not want them taking up in your pond because they are so messy. Who would win in a fight between the geese and the snakes? Yikes :)

    I enjoy your blog...happy Easter!

  3. Better than snakes - yes!....but if they make your pond home it will be like having a pack of dogs in residence. We had a pair settle in here and hatch 5 goslings. When they finally left it took all day to rake up the goose poop that made our lawn and paths a terrible slippery mess - no one could have prepared us for that!

  5. Definitely better than snakes. I would love a pond in the backyard but with 4 little ones, I will have to wait a few years for that for sure. Love your view.

  9. Kim we have so many geese in my neighborhood, they are so beautiful; however yes they are messy, they eat the flowers, then they stop traffic.

  10. Oh Yeah!!! Much better than snakes!!!! We have them in the Bay off and on all summer. Okay as long as they stay out there and don't come up on the lawn...UGH...xo Diana

  11. I hear that the geese won't allow snakes...thus the mess (and yes, there is mess) might be worth it....
    I love that you have a pond....green with envy...

  13. Definitely better than snakes. We have them in my back yard and we also have a lake. I love them in here, in oue county they send out a crew that install a special "bomb" that is implanted under the water and it gets rid of the snakes. Check with your county and see if it's possible.

    Happy Easter!!!!

  17. Lovely snap Kim. My BIL literally had hundreds of geese in his pond and it was a huge issue. My crazy sister is so scared of snakes she scatters moth balls around the edges of her house.

  18. What a glorious view you have! And what a dilemma to have...snakes or geese!

    Happy Easter,

  19. Yes, much prettier than snakes! A beautiful shot.

    I'm so sorry about the water moccasins--dangerous snakes, those, and they get so big! I grew up on acreage with a pond, and those ugly white-mouthed critters just go with it, I suppose. But I'm proud that Mr. Savvy was able to shoot so accurately so soon after his surgery!

    Happy Easter to you and yours!

  20. Those geese look like more friendly visitors to have, at least temporarily.

  21. Kim, do be careful...I was bitten by a copperhead when I was little and almost died...They are so hard to see...keep your eye on little Bailey.

  22. At least if you get too many geese and Mr. S. shoots one in the head you can have it for Christmas dinner!

  23. If only that goose knew what lurked around him. Ha! That's one brave goose.

  24. Yes, much much better than snakes! We have Egrets that visit the neighborhood pond in our section. We love watching them. There is even one that will follow a guy and his dog around who throw food out to the fish and turtles. Egret doesn't mind the dog and the dog doesn't mind the egret. We have named the egret Monti.

  25. They are cute but SOOOOOOOOOOO messy. You will hate it if they take up residence there....but they are better than snakes, for sure! Happy Easter! XO, Pinky

  27. I know they are messy creatures (and loud) but they are so beautiful. Happy Easter, Kim!

  28. The geese are lovely to watch, but maybe you should post a sign for them to bring their pooper scoopers. :@

  29. Definitely much better than snakes. Hope the snakes don't bother the geese. I'd rather have the geese than the snakes. ;-)
    Happy Easter! ~ Sarah

  30. Hi, Kim!
    I always wanted a pond with turtles and geese! And then I found out geese can be quite territorial and noisy!
    It is great to have them as visitor, though! And yes, much better than snakes!!!
    Happy Easter!

  31. Definitely much better than snakes, but boy are they messy and noisy. Next thing you know you will have baby geese :)

    Happy Easter,
    Laura

  32. At this rate poor Bailey is never going to get to go out and play. At least these guests are prettier than the last squatters that had invaded. Do you have plans on building an ark or a zoo?

  33. Soooooooooo much better than a snake. Saw a pair this week too.

    Really sweet capture.

  34. And remember to trim the bottoms of those tulips every couple days when you change the water. They continue to grow even after they are cut. Happy Easter, Lori

  37. I think any creature beats a snake! I like the geese, we often have them in the field behind our house. I just don't want them too close...they make such a mess!
