I have no doubt the animals know it’s the Vernal Equinox, even if not by that name and in the way we do.
To welcome in the Spring our resident Canada Geese are back at Bedlam Farm. With the spring melt, the water is high in the marsh behind the farm and the birds are taking advantage of it. The mallards couple comes and goes, but this goose couple has made its nest here for the past three years at least.
And now they’re back to do it again.
They didn’t seem bothered enough by me to fly away. And they seem to know that Fate isn’t interested in them. I like to think we’re getting to know and trust each other.
I don’t know exactly where they make their nest, but I’ll keep an eye out for them this year, now that I know they’re our seasonal residents.
