It must be goose migration season, because mom saw some more Geese! Mom found these birdies in Longview Texas, recently. They seemed to be "renting" a space on the shore of this peaceful lake near a cemetery.
There appears to be two varieties here and they must be flying back north for the summer.
We are not sure, but this grayish one looks like it could be a type of Bean Goose, though bean geese are seen more in Europe. If anyone knows what kind of goose this is, please let us know.
I will ask my friend, Ari the Canine Naturalist, if she knows what kind of goose this is. (Ari says this could be a Greater White Front Goose!)
This white one could be a Ross's Goose. This is the smallest goose found in North America. These used to be rare but are growing in numbers.
I think that these two geese are discussing their next move. Which direction should they go next? This is a very peaceful, tranquil setting, so they told my mom to tell me that they may stay for a while.
Geese are sort of like people who have winter homes in the south, but live in the north the rest of the year.
