This Just In...

So guess who lives in our new neighborhood??? My beloved Canada Geese. And one just bit me. Nate and I took bowls of ice cream across the street to sit on a bench and enjoy the sunset when we were ambushed by a whole flock of them. Only these ones are braver than the ones at our apartment. They walk RIGHT UP TO YOU and bite your hand or in Nate's case, your shorts. I was wearing some pants that have a drawstring and Nate informed me that I should probably tuck the drawstring in when I am around them...they might think they are worms. Awesome. It was not a malicious bite, he just wanted some food, but it was disgusting nonetheless. I'm sure this will not be my last post about the geese.

While protecting their young, Canadian geese often violently chase away nearby creatures, from small blackbirds to other geese, to humans that approach, after warning them by giving off a hissing sound.
