8 Images of Tundra Bean Geese in Flight
A scientist would call this Bean Goose, Anser serrirostris because, that's the way they talk.
These birds only come to our island for the winter months.
This morning, I was up and out of the house before the sun came up.
This pair of birds was on the ground, when I first spotted them and, they saw me coming.
Plenty of photos were taken, before they decided, to take off in flight.
The males of this species are a bit larger than the females. Look closely at the second bird.
The one that seems to be yapping at her mate. Now, let's have some fun.
Imagine her screaming at him, "What did I tell you? That guy's gonna shoot us."
"Wait 'til your mother-in-law hears about this. You never listen to me."
She goes on and on, flapping her wings and mouth, while he says nothing.
"The old man was sneaking up on us and, you did nothing."
"Now, he's shooting us, like we're a pair of sitting ducks."
So he's thinking. "Later honey. I have to land somewhere and, take a crap. See ya later."
