New friends....

While I was out on Remington Drive today
I heard this honking noise....
I looked all over
and then I spotted my new friends in our yard....

Meet Hansel and Gretel....
They are called a Canadian Honker Goose . 
I suppose it's because they honk....ha ha!

They just stopped in for the afternoon to visit! 
It was so nice to see them! 
I wished them well on their journey.

Later -- Remington --
I have the coolest friends!
 -- out!

We have thousands of those up here now but it won't be long before they are on their way south and the leaves will change color and fall to the ground.

We have a nature reserve (Bosque del Apache)not far from Albuquerque where Canada Snow Geese and Honkers overwinter with Sandhill Cranes, Whooping Cranes, and Eagles. It is amazing to visit...and VERY loud. I love hiking at the Bosque there and watching the wildlife...you are so lucky to have it all in your own backyard!

Hi Beth, I love cats too and have had them most of my life. Usually more than one at a time, it has just happened that way this time. The only cat that was not a stray was Tiger all the rest of all my cats just found me.
I see the geese every once in a while but there is no water close to our land so not very often. I put out fresh water everyday of the year for many many animals. We never go anywhere ever!!
