My Geese in the Rain

Today at my Bedford, New York farm, we're expecting clouds and rain this morning with possible snow showers this afternoon. With higher than usual temperatures, it's been a dreary, wet, and muddy winter so far.

I always enjoy seeing the beautiful snow covering the landscape this time of year, but one group who seems uninhibited by all the rain and mud is my gaggle of geese. They have a long, heated shelter in one corner of their enclosure, but they rarely stay there. Instead, these comical birds prefer to gather in the mud-filled patches and play in their pools. And they always come running to greet any visitors that pass by.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
