Dark-eyed Junco and Canada Geese

The first thing that greeted me this morning when I opened the door was bird song. A Dark-eyed Junco was sitting facing the sun and singing for all he was worth. Sing on little junco, sing on!

I had gone out with the intention of taking pictures of the Canada Geese feeding in the adjacent field. These wild geese are very wary birds so I could not get too close without disturbing them. I crept along the road stopping briefly every few minutes, but I know they saw me. Not wanting to make them fly up, I soon left.
