Fowl Play at Mill Pond

Urban Wildlife

Mill Pond is close to our house, in Richmond Hill, a short drive by car; and only 30 minutes by foot. It is a beautiful green space in the midst of a nice suburb; one of the attractions for us are the ducks (Anas platyrhynchos), geese  and two swans (Cygnus olor), who we have named George and Georgina. It is the Canada geese (Branta canadensis), however, that are in largest abundance. We have befriended them, and they are not fearful of us or our presence.
