Sharing space

As I made my way around the corner out of the parking lot i decide to pull over alongside the road to watch and listen to the sound of nature, geese, meadowlarks, red-winged blackbirds, crows and wood peckers, soon to be masked by the sound of semis roaring by, not too far away on I-80. Actually only a few hundred yards away. This small piece of undeveloped land is serving one of many purposes for the time being. A roosting and nesting place for several pairs of Canada Geese. 
Pic: Pair of Canada Geese cautiously walk towards the safety of a pond. In the distance a reminder of how close we are with nature, wildlife in a growing city.

  1. A sad state of affairs for animals when development of lands increasingly encroaches upon their habitat and they are forced to find homes in the most unlikely places.
