Canadas in the marsh for Camera Critters

Yesterday morning we took a walk along the boardwalk over the Saints Rest Marsh at the Irving Nature Park in Saint John , N.B. I could see something rather tall far ahead in the marsh grass and now and then I could see movement there. As we got closer we recognized the very identifiable white notch at thetop of the black glossy neck that is characteristic of a Canada Goose.
They looked very hsndsome there in the brownish marsh grass. As we approached and got nearer, the geese took off in flight across the marsh.This is the photoabove that I have used as a header. What lovely critters these geese were for my camera.and what a lovely location for a walk this boardwalk was.

As common as the geese are,I never get tired of seeing them.

I agree with Ruth...even though they are common they are very pretty with that white chin-strap and black head and neck. They look great in those grasses.

Wonderful shots of the Canada Geese. The boardwalk looks like a great place to do some birding.
