A couple of swans have taken it upon themselves to bring up 4 baby geese.

A flock of snow geese put on a mesmerising display as they flew in the skies above central Pennsylvania.

Footage captured on March 7 shows large numbers of snow geese flying in different formations across Lewisburg town as they migrate to the Arctic.

At this time of the year, the snow geese migrate from Pennsylvania to the Arctic and Sub-Arctic where they will breed in the spring and summer.

An animal charity has released shocking footage of geese being force-fed at a French foie gras farm – in a bid to stop people buying the “cruel” food at Christmas. Animal Equality claim it filmed in secret while on a public tour of La Ferme Turnac in Domme near Toulouse in southern France in August. Footage shows farmers trapping the birds using a metal holder before shoving a long tube down their throats and pumping them full of food. In some clips the birds can be seen trying to pull away before they are trapped, and workers massaging their necks while forcing food into their stomachs.

Domestic geese displaying upending behaviour – this is a feeding tactic employed by ducks and geese to feed from the bottom of a pond or other water body. The birds paddle and kick behind them to retain their position on the surface of the water body and to undo the effect the air sacs around their body which don’t allow them to go under, per se!

While these are geese upending, according to Wikipedia:

“The word duck comes from Old English *dūce “diver”, a derivative of the verb *dūcan “to duck, bend down low as if to get under something, or dive”, because of the way many species in the dabbling duck group feed by upending; compare with Dutch duiken and German tauchen “to dive”.”

The National Zoological Park (originally Delhi Zoo) is a 176-acre (71 ha) zoo near the Old Fort in Delhi, India. The zoo is home to about 1350 animals representing almost 130 species of animals and birds from around the world.

The zoo can be seen on foot or using a battery-operated vehicle which can be rented at the zoo. Visitors are not permitted to bring any food other than drinking water, but there is a canteen in the zoo.

Those living in the Portland, Oregon, metro area woke up to snow on Wednesday, February 14, but the snow wasn’t expected to last.

The National Weather Service said the snow was expected to melt by the morning commute and rain was in the forecast for Wednesday in lower elevations.

A group of ducks and geese at Hanson’s Hideaway Farm in La Center, Washington, just north of Portland, didn’t know what to make of the four inches of snow that fell. The group had a little trouble figuring out where to dive into the pond for a morning swim. Credit: Hanson’s Hideaway Farm via Storyful
