Call me paranoid if you want. The Geese are taking over. I mean, they are everywhere. It seems that every road I drive, or sidewalk I pass, or trail I walk, have Canada Geese on them somewhere. Our city is definitely becoming a haven for these pernicious waterfowl. And they must have had an outstanding breeding year. I don't envy the civic officials. Geese are protected and it is no easy job to dislodge them from any place they have a fancy to occupy. But that day is coming. At least they're not in my yard. Yet.
This Wingscapes BirdCam enthusiast and keeper of a well-stocked "bird cafe" has been watching birds in Cary for over 18 years. I adopted the BirdCam in December 2007 and have been working with the product daily, recording over 35 species locally and gaining significant experience with the use of this amazing device. I'm not a "power birder." While I enjoy birdwatching in the field, I appreciate the simple delights of the birds found in my own backyard or in places just down the street. These are truly interesting places and I never tire of the little stories told every day in those places. The birds are central to this experience, but expect me to talk about the things that also are part of the birdwatching experience here at Cary BirdCam, from buying bird seed to crunching numbers in the logbook. Thanks for being a reader!
