Riviera Pond Spring 2017
The geese are starting to arrive this spring. A flock was hanging out at Mitford Park on the banks of the Bow River. Some were tucked in napping…probably trying to stay warm…while others were eating…and as always one was standing guard!
In Riviera there is a natural vegetated pond. There is always a flurry of activity! The geese are in and out with the seasons. We see the courtship in the spring and families defending their pond in the fall. There is lots of head pumping, hissing, honking, and vibrating feathers! I loved this moment…trying to get out of harms, with little traction on the ice!
