A Lovers' Quarrel

The Canada Geese couple enjoying warm Nevada sun in Henderson Bird Preserve.

Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) mate for life. Males and females look very much alike with males being slightly bigger.

How sweet!

The Canadian geese are in our neck of the woods these days as well. Guess they're digging the warm temps in SoCal this year! :)

Re: How sweet!

I'm sure they do. I took this picture on a warm day also. Unfortunately I have never seen their young. They must be nesting somewhere else.
Thanks for stopping by.

Re: Funny...!

Thank you Alec. I watched them for quite a while. These two hanged out together and I was getting lots of nice but boring shots of just two geese standing around. Finally they started getting loud and even ducks showed up (definitely a couple too) by chance and it all made for a more exciting picture.
Cheers, Anya
