A pair of Goosander's.

Hi everyone,

I've noticed that between the rain showers the birds really come out and I saw a heron by this pond and then I saw these Goosander so I took this photo of them which shows the trees drooping into the pond so its not like a pond in a Park, Mother Nature does the gardening here and I like that.

Goosander are big white ducks with colourful heads and the males have black back feathers, the females are much browner and I that think they are magnificent. You can see how the wind is causing ripples on the pond making their reflection shimmer.

Another reason go get your coat on and get outside as we don't know what we'll see. I have to confess when the wind roared like a freight train through the trees in the forest, I was very glad that I was on my way home🏑......πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ......πŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨

Great photo Jerry. It’s blowing a hoolie here. Whatever a hoolie is! It’s always worth braving the elements and getting out there πŸ‘
