wild things!

On a rainy Saturday ride along the 'back roads' we found some great wild things!

Wild geese


Wild turkeys

Goats were introduced as a meat source and to control introduced weeds. You can read more here.

Beautiful shots of the wildlife and the countryside - the green backgrounds are such a huge contrast to the look of the dry brown bushland we have in rural south-east Qld at the moment!

The goats are cute, but a pest I see:

In open country, with low population densities, Judas goat technology is sometimes used. In these situations, a goat is caught, fitted with a radio-collar and released back into the area. This animal - known as a Judas - then hopefully joins up with any remaining mob of goats, allowing the hunter to locate and shoot the mob.

We have wild turkeys here as well (sometimes they sit on the roofs of the houses in the neighborhood), but they are not white like yours - more brown and black-ish.

Spring is looking green! The little goslings are so cute, I'm surprised to see the turkeys, and the goats look very much at home. The last goat with the horns and interesting facial pattern looks a little threatening.

Cute geese and goslings. I like the stare you're getting from the black goat.

Amazing colors! Your first shot, with the wet geese...I have never seen them look wet before, not even in the water. It made me laugh. Thank you for stopping by Sanukipity and leaving the kind words (yes, we did all survive on the candy in our days, lol).
