Al just beckoned me outside to take a look at a gorgeous blue sky filled with a multitude of SNOW GEESE.

BEAUTIFUL creatures . . . a bit noisy though.

We seem to be a stopover (several weeks) for the Canadian Geese before they continue farther south to the Bosque del Apache each year. In the valley and some more rural areas, cut fields will just be full of them snacking on who knows what until they have eaten their fill and move on. Nothing quite like a loud, honking field of geese.

When I went to Iowa Jan. 18, (traveling across Mid-Missouri) I saw flock after flock of geese flying WEST! Go figure!

As a kid my daddy used to sing a few lines of a song called 'the old gray goose' . . . so prompted by this thread I googled it and came up with this!!

Obviously "snow geese" are a different breed, but this YT clip reminded me of my daddy - always a good thing!!

So that's were they went. Last week they were eating corn left in our harvested fields here in southern Illinois. There were thousands of them just behind our house. They are very noisy birds.

Yesterday I watched 7 young deer playing tag in my backyard in the rain. They were racing around in circles, in and out of the woods, jumping the creek, and racing uphill. This went on for about 30 mins. sometimes they would turn so fast that their back legs would slip and they would fall on their butts. I took a picture from my phone, but with the distance and rain you can't see them.
