It started with a perfect crescent moon this morning.
Really Snow Geese, here in Nova Scotia? I did a quick “google” search and found a listing on Environment Canada’s website, where I learned the French name, Oie des Neiges, and the scientific name, Chen Caerulescens of the Snow Goose.
I read that they are rare to uncommon transient. What a wonderful surprise to see a dozen of them resting on their long black legs, with their heads snugly tucked under their wings. Have they been blown off course?
The frosty morning disappeared into a mild day, perhaps they flew in on the Sou’wester!
