When there are Snapping Turtles in a pond and the pond is in the Carolinas in June and it’s hot and they have the hots, they call it a Snapping Turtle Paddle Battle for the Biggest Babe Blowing Bubbles at the Bottom.
In retrospect I can say that May is bird month around here. We have fourteen incubator hatched chickens in the coop that are approaching seven weeks. And we have had a wild goose family staying around with their four chicks.
At the end of March I posted a video of a the pair of nesting geese, before they had chicks, chasing off another couple. Now that their goslings are several weeks old, they have a whole new attitude. What was one family has grown to three families, with twelve goslings in all. They have been here for a couple of days now.
We share the field with a wild Canadian family. This is the second time in seven years that we have had nesting geese. They eat constantly. Fortunately they leave our vegetables alone.
The father is fierce. Yesterday he was tussling with a Great Blue Heron that was twice as tall and had a wing span twice as long as his. He finally chased the heron away after a lot of honking and flapping of wings from both parties.
