Here we've had a good amount of time to acclimate the old geese with the new geese, and the new ducks with everyone. For weeks, the old geese terrified the ducks. Then one day, everyone was accepted. The new geese/old geese relationship is trickier. As the old geese recognize the new geese as their own kind, they are more reluctant to let them fit in. It seems we may be ironing it out a bit now, though. I think it has more to do with the new geese's size than anything else. They are becoming a force to be reckoned with. Either way, it seems that it's getting better.
Of course, none of that applies to interlopers. A pair of mallards came flying out of the sky this morning and landed in the pond.
