After lunch with Kevin, the girls and I went for a walk to Josey Ranch Lake. Lots of water fowl has migrated from the northern states, down here to overwinter in North Texas. Katelynn and Sara watched the swans, the geese, the ducks, the pigeons and other birds, while I captured photos of them. The Canada Geese were comfortable enough to eat around us, as long as we didn’t touch them. On the other hand, the American Wigeons, the Northern Shovelers and the American Coots swam as far away from us as they could at the lake. The Mute Swans didn’t care and kept cleaning themselves in the meantime.

One of the ladies of our local photography group mentioned, that we have some Canada Geese at the pond by the lake. I drove over there to see, if they were still at the pond. And sure enough, there were about half of a dozen Canada Geese, a couple of Double-crested Cormorants, and a Great Egret.
