Odd Couple Spotted in Old Oakville

Sometimes we lose our way in life and in so doing, we lose the ones that we belong with. Not knowing what to do, we try to fit in with the closest thing we can find to our way of life and the individuals we are most familiar with.

This works out fine, sometimes. Often we find it too hard to try and be something we're not and eventually, after misplacing integral parts of ourselves, we decide we miss our tribe and our old way of life.
Then we pack up and go back to the place and people that feel like 'home'.Hillside at Erchless Estate in Old Oakville

Humans are lucky that way. They're able to remember where they belong and who they belong with. Birds aren't always so lucky.

Such is the case with this lone Snow Goose who, for reasons we're not privy to, found himself living with a flock of Canada Geese.

I felt kind of sad for this Snow Goose. He seemed so out of place. Snow Goose at Oakville Harbour

Perhaps one day, maybe when the flock he's chosen to be with is stopped somewhere along their migration route in the fall, he'll spot a band of Snow Geese and will recognize them as his own.Snow Goose Mated With Canada Goose at Erchless Estate

Until then, he's happy to just follow along and pretend he's a Canada Goose with a lovely Canada Goose mate.
