A Ruckas in the Back Alley

It was quite noisy in the back alley this particular morning. The fighting between two couples was echoing off the buildings and was loud, attracting people’s attention from the surrounding apartments and condos.. I went out to investigate, taking my camera with me. Turns out that one couple is trying to set up house on the balcony of someone’s  apartment (the owners must be thrilled) and the other couple were loudly protesting from the parking area.below. At one point, one of the mates flew up to the balcony but bounced off the wall, not quite hitting the mark.In the last photo the couple  seem to be perplexed, maybe giving up. It has been eerily quiet since then  and I wonder whether someone took the matter into their hands in a lethal way.

    • Oh yes, I like to hear them echoing off the buildings at first, but they do go on and on…

    Hehe…yes the Canada Goose can be quite loud! 🙂 Hopefully for the owner of the apartment they found somewhere else to nest! 🙂

    Hi Jane, Oh those City Geese… deciding the ponds aren’t good enough they are becoming Condo dwellers! They certainly can be amusing to watch. I went to Mckenzie Trails Park last week where there was a lot of noise and ruckus, the lake was still mostly frozen but they were staking their claims. How have you been doing? I finally feel back to normal, the prescription I was on for high Blood Pressure was causing my health problems, But Dr’s don’t always listen to their patients, so when he finally agreed to try me on something else….Voila I feel better! I’ve been getting out more with my camera, My sister in law and I went out one night when the Aurora watch was issued, we did get a few photo’s but they were very faint in the sky, the colour did pop out on the computer though, We didn’t get any “good” shots, even stayed out till 4 am! I got second place for The Club’s Feb. photo assignment. The beer bottles on the fence picture, so was pretty excited about that! Our next assignment is panning, so have to get to work on that.
