Canada Geese, gleaning the stubble...

Canada Geese, gleaning the stubble...

This is a lean time for the birds and they fly great distances...there is a sanctuary in the area...but every spring and fall they fly in their long straggling Vees.

Ah, you've got them! They are a spring sign here on their way to the north slope to nest. They come when the ground is showing. I hear they have been sighted in Tok.

We get the Canada geese flying over here in great numbers and V formations in the late Autumn and Spring. Migratery flight me thinks. We do get some that live on the river down the road during the Spring till Autumn time. I hear them calling to one another chatting whilst they are in flight. I think that it's wonderful.

Yes harbingers of the changing seasons...most definitely ...there are some urban parks in some of our cities who are trying to discourage the geese...I'm sure we've all heard the old chestnut about how fast something goes thro a goose! well they leave a lot of it around..and it's a bit unsanitary... Great that you remarked on their "talking" as they fly, Lindak, They fly so low over my house that I can hear the leader saying "Pick up the pace George...I have a hot date in Ottawa tonight!". lol.

I have put a photo of a pair with babies taken in Kew Gardens on Saturday afternoon in my blog 17~also saw this Golden Pheasant which was attracting a lot of interest but appeared totally unconcerned!

They look like "lesser" Canada geese, with their short necks, so you know IT goes through a little faster than a long neck goose, hehe, hee!!

LOL...Doon... "lesser" or "greater" the "end" result is the same!!!
