Imagine...on the front lawn

Now, I know these birds as the Canada Geese.  They have chosen to stay awhile with me.  They come every morning and evening.  They feed off insects on the lawn, they get to swim around on the Miramichi River.  Life is certainly good for them as I don't want to hunt them, I just enjoy their visits everyday.  I have a feeling I will luck into alot of other nature episodes while I am housesitting here.  Different seasons bring on different sights.  This past winter saw alot of snowmobilers on the river.  This summer will see a lot of sailboats and fishing ships.   Maybe the occasional salmon jumping out of the water.  What a great opportunity for photographs!!

Smelt fishing on the Miramichi

This is from my Post Card collection.  It depicts a time when work was hard to get, so you worked at whatever came along.  In the winter months, mostly February and March, smelts were caught and in barrels and sold.  Even to today, those are the only two months this happens.  There smelt frys everywhere on the Miramichi, sometimes they are deep fried and sometimes grilled.  They are extremely little fish and very tasty.  A real treat since it only comes around once a year.  To see more work related pictures go to the 119th edition of  http://sepiasaturday.blogspot.com and have a great weekend everyone!!!

What kind of bird is this?

Tonight, I met a couple of ladies and we had supper at the "Welcome Back" chinese restaurant.  As we were enjoying our meal, one lady noticed this bird perched on the railing of the outdoors patio.  Can anyone tell me what kind of bird this is.  We thought it was either a falcon or hawk.
