Heading North

Last fall, I told Birdgirl “There are lots of geese flying over!”
Birdgirl said “uh-huh.”
I said, “No, really, LOTS! Hundreds of geese, thousands!”
Birdgirl said “uh-huh.”

It’s hard to be impressed with the idea of a flock of Canada Geese flying over, they have become so commonplace, fouling parks, wintering over, year-round residents. But these geese were amazing in their numbers, reassuring in their wild behaviour, heading south in streaming, honking Vs of beautiful, wild birds. It took a visit to convince Birdgirl. Once she had seen these huge flocks for herself, she understood my excitement. Here is her post about the geese.

Now the geese are returning. All afternoon on Sunday, and much of Monday, their voices could be heard, floating down to the earthbound. Many, most of the geese flocks are travelling very high up, sometimes appearing as little more than dots in the sky.
They have passed by, fifty, a hundred at a time, thousands flying north to greet another summer.
