Spring in the Polder

Today I went for a “run”.  I put it in quotes because it was more walking than running.  My stomach just wasn’t feeling good and bouncing up and down wasn’t helping.  I think I just ate too much and didn’t wait long enough to run.

Anyway, while walking it’s possible to take photos.  The geese and ducks and swans are hatching babies and they are beginning to be visible out in the fields.  I took a few photos with my iPhone.

These black swans live in the canal near our house.  They don’t seem to have any babies this year.  I think there is another pair out further in the polder that are the parents of these 3 and possibly they have some offspring this year, not seen yet.

Canadian geese and their goslings.

I don’t know what kind of geese these are.  Do you?

I should go for a walk out there with my new camera and get some decent close ups of all the birds.  If we get some nice weather in the next few days I will do just that.
