Discovering a Gaggle With Gander, Goose and Goslings

Usually, when we walk the dogs we tend to follow the same route, but today we decided to take a new path around the far side of a neighborhood pond.  When we got to the other side we were greeted by a few geese.

It seems like these geese are very comfortable around humans and dogs as they didn't seem to be bothered at all by us.

I also think that these geese are well fed by all of our neighbors who come by to throw old bread toward them.

Birds and the Bees…but mostly Birds

Earlier today I was mowing the grass and came across a House Finch nest in one of the trees near our house.  I also found that there were four eggs in it.  I decided to take a picture to see if we can monitor the progress of any hatchlings.

Awesome Placement of a Sushi Train

Earlier tonight I met an old friend from Albuquerque for dinner in Tyson's Corner.  While I was waiting for him to arrive at the mall, I walked around and came across a sushi train placed right smack in the middle of the shopping center.  No, not in a centrally located food court - right in the middle of the area that shoppers walk. Take a look at the video I took from the balcony over the restaurant.
