Bird sighting

We are enjoying bird sightings.  This morning the first family of geese with their goslings showed up.  We think they were probably hatched at the neighbors pond since we had not seen the male guarding and the bird book says they sit on their eggs for 25 to 28 days. 

This afternoon I saw the first male hummingbird visit the feeder in front of the house. 

There is also a robin sitting on her nest in a tree close to the deck that overhangs the lake.  We have the spotting scope fixed on her so we can see when the eggs hatch.
