There were ducks and geese as well - mallards mostly in the duck category, and Canada geese of course flying in and out, and two swans...
It was exhilarating and soothing at the same time - no human sounds, though there were about a half a dozen cars parked in the lot with people watching as I was. Just bird sounds, and the rush flutter and splash of geese taking off and landing at various locations around the harbour.
A woman was taking photos with a long lens on her camera - those photographs must have been beautiful - the light was breath-taking, the birds not only plentiful but putting on a show for her.
The swans moved silently away from the shore and the pressures from the geese and humans combined. Interesting response. No begging.
Isn't that a lovely sight and sound? Hope you enjoyed it as much as I.
