Don’t get me wrong, I love wildlife – but when they come to dine on our newly seeded pastures, it doesn’t make me happy.
We live near the grass seed capital of the world, can’t they find somewhere else to eat???
I’m talking about the beautiful Canada Goose. We often have a pair or two enjoying our pond, but since we seeded our pastures this fall – this is a common sight…
There are different flocks that have been digging holes in the ground, some are very leery and will fly off as soon as I am in the driveway and some, like this group today, I have to practically jump in the middle of them to get them to fly away.
It looks like they have a little tagalong 🙂
This poor gal has a bum leg. She would kind of hop/fly to get around. I wouldn’t mind if her and a friend wanted to call our pond home for the winter.
Just not this many friends. Today there were only 30, but we have had as many as 100 and it is incredible what they can do to the ground. They dig holes and pull the grass out by the roots!
They are such beautiful birds and I really enjoy watching them, but not when they are eating the grass that I have been very conservative with.
So, I will keep asking them to move along and hopefully they will spread the word that our pastures are for sheep only!
Now that’s better!
