Surprise Visitors

This morning as I was packing up and getting things ready to go north to our Weekend Parsonage, Andy was going crazy! He was ringing the bell urgently trying to get outside. He was whining and growling and whimpering and pacing and just dancing around he was so excited.

So, I looked to see what was going on and this is what I saw in our backyard ...

I don't know WHY they chose our small backyard to fly into. They seemed to be checking out the pool pretty closely and considering going for a swim. But, no fish were there. (THANK goodness!)

We enjoyed watching them play and didn't let Andy out to chase them. They might have turned on him and chased him! Now that would have been funny to watch!

They played for a few minutes and then flew away. I don't even know what kind they are and if they are the same "brand"... but they did seem to be friends!

Hope you have some nice surprises today, too. Enjoy the spring weather. We are having a beautiful warm day tomorrow. Sunday turns cold again - back to the 20's Sunday night :( and a few more cold days. Maybe we will then have a nice warm spring! I'm ready to get my flowers out!

Merrie, I found this site on identifying the geese. Check it out when you have time.

What a nice surprise.

I think that green one is a mallard, but I can't be sure.

Celebrities! I think one of them is the model/icon for the brand "Duck Head" :)

My guess is mallard but there's a title my cousins and I pass back and forth that relates to our ability to spout factoids that have no basis in truth. The illustrious title is Queen Bullsheeta. : )
I am refraining on commenting on the Pay it Forward post because I've done it. It's fun and the scones- oh me oh my.
