On the Pond

Last night on the Pond (Maumee River) there drifted a gaggle of 85-plus Canada Geese. Huddled at the Eastern side of the bridge, they were supposedly taking advantage of a large tree/log jam underneath the structure that resulted in a pond-like area near the shoreline. However, it was too dark for one to snap any photos of the paddling birds.

In the morning, I returned to the area to see how many were left. The geese gaggle had just flown the coop and landed a ways off on the Western side of the bridge.

On the bridge’s Eastern side, a little group of Mallards were hanging together.

In the meantime, some straggling geese made a bee-line for the main hive:

Ah, the Pond, where mates are made and tag-along friends are welcome, too!
