Goose Month

I managed to catch up with the 11 Greater White-fronted Geese at Fawn Island early this morning.  At first I saw three on the ice, then eight came flying in from somewhere.  They circled a bit, some landed, then took off, circled again, and then went to the other side of the island.  They seem to be restless!

Lots of Canada Geese around as well in the morning.  Late in the day they seem to mostly disappear.

The White-fronted were even honking as they flew around.

Down at Shrewsbury/Erieau, it has become the Ross's Goose capital.  Apparently 21 were seen yesterday, and today 15 were photographed by Aaron Charbonneau.
One can take a gander at the goose records this past month and say it has been rather incredible.  Probably more to come, and I will be out and about this weekend taking a gander.
