The Canada Geese, the Trumpeter Swans and the Mallard Ducks are gathered on Fish Hook River. It is fun to go see them, there is enough current to keep the water open unless it gets really cold. The geese, swans and ducks feed on submerged vegetation and buckets of corn supplied by well meaning people.
In years past there was one old guy who feed them everyday…I don’t think that is happening anymore. While we were there a lady with a red bucket went near the shore, but the waterfowl all moved to the other side of the river….so they were not familiar with her and her bucket.
All the waterfowl seem to get along, perhaps they are old friends and meet up here every year for Christmas/New Years before heading south.
Chance enjoyed watching them…quietly. He was such a good boy!
Our weather is mild for Minnesota…I kinda like El Nino. I got the shoveling caught up with yesterday and de decorated the rest of the downstairs. Christmas decorations were sorted and put away. All that remains is a few decorations outside and they can stay there for a while and the Shiny Brite Tree is still decorated upstairs. I have mixed feelings about taking it down…I will take it down before I have to dust the ornaments!
