Grackle and Geese

Thunderstorms and a high of 76 degrees. Can't complain about the temperature, but Hubs has the day off from his part time gig at Home Depot and we were hoping to actually do some things outside.
 Like mow the lawn and then take a walk through the nature center looking for birds other than sparrows and grackles.
Yesterday Fergus went with me to The Rez to check on Mr. and Mrs. Goose. They were sunning themselves on the bank until we got a little too close.
Then they went for a swim out into the middle where they were safe.

The temperature does sound nice. I'm ready for warmer weather here north of Toronto. Funny how some geese are quite friendly and others are rather shy.

The grackle is looking a little sassy!
