This morning i had to go and do a job at the local nursing home and help a staff member taking the Residents on a bus outing this morning anyway we went to a Lake that was man made and it has lots of ducks and Black Swans Turtles and other birds there you can feed them.. The residents had a wonderful time feeding the birds but i am only showing the birds today.. I love taking photo's of birds. The Geese hissed at me when i went to take there photo didn't get to close to them...It was pretty cool seeing baby black swans this morning i have never seen them.. What a treat.. Anyway please enjoy our birds...

Lovely pictures, Lyn! I know what you mean with the geese, there were many times that I had to run away as I had my cousin's geese chasing me with their beaks open and tongues out, that was back when I was a child. They didn't like my visits... :eek:

Thank you Aluz... The geese didn't chase me but just made a noise hiss at me so I didn't get to close but when they were in the water they took the bread out of my hand... Glad you liked the photos....

Terrific pictures Lyn. I just love the baby swans. And I have always had a soft spot for ducks. My father had ducks when I was little. They were egg producers. Our family got them during the Second World War as it was nearly impossible to get chicken eggs. So we had the ducks to provide not only us but other people with eggs. We used to breed the ducks as well. We only had a few, about 5,000 of them. I used to love playing with the babies in the brooder room.

Many farmers keep Geese as watch dogs instead of dogs. They alert everyone when a stranger is around.
