A break from the tropical birds - one from my archives. Canada geese on Foothills Parkway.

These stately birds are one of my favorites

Their color is magnificent. I love their necks and their regal waddle. It's always a beautiful sight to see a flock of these big, strong geese covering a lawn or flying overhead in their traditional amazing vee~~~~~~

I agree. Even though they

I agree. Even though they leave an enormous amount of poop, I really find geese fascinating.

Goose love

I love them also...Particularly the breast filets stuffed with cream cheese, adobo sauce, and mild peppers, and wrapped in smoked bacon...One of my favorite camping meals,especially if topped off with a signature tequila served neat.

I've seen one pair of Loons on Watts Bar already, so I know there must be many more out there in the wider parts of the lake. Anyone else made contact with these winter visitors from the North?

Hey that's very gourmet camping menu

Though game is usually a little too strong for me, I found my mouth watering over your recipe. Maybe I'll try it with chicken.

Once a farmer cooked BBQ racoon for me. He boiled it about five times, each time using fresh water. He laughed and said the secret to good racoon was to "boil the piss outta 'em". In spite of the BBQ sauce, I could still taste the forest floor in there somewhere. Trained to never offend a host by refusing food, I somehow managed to get through the meal, but no thanks no more critters for me.

Everything was wild at some

Everything was wild at some point...even carrots.

Duck and Goose don't change much from the wild to the domesticated version except for the feed. Corn seems to mellow everything out...even a cow.
