I am thankful for whimsy. Seen near work:
Yes, yes I did turn around and stalk the goose with my car so that I could take it's picture. Wouldn't you?
I'm off to knit and watch t.v. so that I can get the goose cacaphony out of my head. I've got the words and tune from "Go Tell Aunt Rhodie", assorted nursery rhymes, various images from Mother Goose and Grimm, and a number of goosey proverbs vying for attention in my head.
So, Joan, if you're reading, is this a Canadian White Front? I haven't found a picture of one with the orange face. Doesn't seem to match domestic goose photos. It's head was about as high as my driver's side mirror.
Here's a domestic goose: pilgrim geese. The bill isn't quite the same but the rest of the goose is very similar.
This one is close, also: steinbacher-geese.
