    I just went out to tuck my birds in and take a tour of the yard before crashing as I do every night...a very large 'possum was trying to get into the coop...he is in 'possum heaven...got him with a .12 gauge I take with me on my nightly walk around...scared the poop out of the geese, but I guess that really isn't too hard to do...the duckies made a mad dash for the opposite end of their area and I had to sit and talk to them a bit before they got over the big scare of the shot gun...I hate to do that stuff but they can not have my birds...I will probably have 'possum nightmares tonight...

    Good job! Beats the heck out of catching them in a live trap and taking them 10-12 miles away and releasing them to kill someone else's birds. Thanks!
