Online friend Tena Dee Blom posted some pix of Canada geese IN TREES and was kind enough to allow me to post one of them here. She took the photos just west of Vaughn.
I had no idea that Canada geese nested in trees – how cool!

The goslings just follow MOM right out the nest when it’s time to fledge. This seems like quite the distance for their first flight though…… weeeeeeeeee
Thank you Tena!
Saw some similar stuff the last few days on Facebook, and a spike in traffic to this entry from 2008, so here it is again for your enjoyment
Oh dear. Looks like Great Falls is taking it on the chin again, this time in Barbie form. Some Montana blogger – not sure where – has posted a series of Montana Barbies, complete with pictures, which are pretty darn funny…even if our beloved community of Great Falls is portrayed in an unflattering light.
GREAT FALLS BARBIE: This recently paroled Barbie comes with a 9mm handgun, a Ray Lewis knife, a Chevy truck with dark tinted windows, and a meth Lab Kit. This model is only available after dark and must be paid for in cash (preferably small, untraceable bills) unless you are a cop, then we don’t know what you are talking about.
Can you spot the Great Falls Barbie in this collection? Or the Whitefish, or Billings, or Missoula (ha!), or Wolf Point?
A thread over at MetaFilter about the theme song to the TV show “Cheers” led to this post over at Ken Levine’s blog, which yielded this interesting comment from someone in Helena:
Cool – the Great Falls/Cascade County Crimestoppers now has a website – 727tips.org – not much there yet, but stay tuned…
The good folks at Central Avenue Antiques — my new favorite antique/collectible store — are having a sale: 20% off of everything! Definitely worth stopping by.

Pretty cool — the folks over at Great Harvest on 1st Avenue North have “Military Monday” — buy one loaf, get one leaf free! And it applies to anyone with a military ID card – even crusty (< -- ha ha) old retired guys like me.
Great Harvest is a pretty awesome place - full of tasty treats, and a great attitude (and sense of humor).
