Where were the Geese?Following on the posts below, there was one very odd feature of my morning visits to the waterfront this week. I saw no Canada Geese.
Normally there are hundreds of them paddling about or wandering about eating grass (and, characteristically, leaving not so little deposits). I did see a few mallards, but no Canada Geese.
It seems most likely they just found a greener pasture somewhere else along the waterfront, and will be back tomorrow. But I'll be really worried if they have all flown south, since we normally have a large resident winter population. I would fear they know something about the coming winter that I do not.
