We're about to have another family of geese at our family. It's quite an adventure going over to see them. The male goose is the distraction and is always the lookout. So, everytime we go over to check out the momma and her eyes, we have to carry a big stick because the male will fly at you to try and scare you away. They let us get pretty close but they didn't like it. They were pretty noisey...ha! But, we didn't stay long.
