I love these birds. They are just so majestic in my eyes. The way the prance around so sure of themselves and not really caring what you do, until you get too close that is. They just swoop in and take over any wetland area in town that they want. The wander the parks and the outlying fields in search of a meal. Then they set up home, raise a few goslings and leave you wondering what happened in the fall.
They are so much fun to watch. I love to watch them raise their young and I look forward to their return every year.
