Last night, the pond behind my house crusted over. The migrating Canadian Geese usually come in for a swim, but this morning they got quite a surprise. The pond was crusted and when they flew in for a landing, they were sliding instead of floating on the water. It was such a cute and funny sight to see. Considering that the geese are very heavy birds, I am a bit surprised that they haven't broken through the thin crust of ice.....as there are spots that aren't yet crusted over.
