Donna MacIntosh snapped up some photos of the returning geese around Keweenaw bay. I'm betting they were glad to have found the waters opening up so they could be finding food and swimming around. Good thing they have natural down insulation, cold as that water must be. Donna's last photo has you doing a double take, since at first glance it looks like a two-headed goose. Nice optical illusion!

Yesterday there was a hugh flock heading north over Calumet, they were flight geese as they were very high. Must have been several hundred in that flock.

Nice pictures Donna!

When the geese fly in their V formation, why is one side of the V longer than the other?

Gus --

They can fly, but they can't count.

We saw a flock of geese flying and the leader decided to make a sharp right and the rest of the birds kept flying straight then all of a sudden struggled to make their right and catch up to the leader. We looked at each other and started laughing.

There are more geese on the longer side......FJL


By Gus LL (Gusll) on Tuesday, April 14, 2009 - 01:35 pm:

FJL, Right on, you get an A+ for that one.

Canada Geese are probably my favourite species of geese.

Thanks Jamie!

When the geese are in the V formation why does the one in the lead not honk?


By Steve Haagen (Radsrh) on Tuesday, April 14, 2009 - 09:18 pm:

There is no one in front of him to honk at ;)

I knew it was here somewhere...

Saw about 40 - 50 geese flying north yesterday here in Cornell. Many of them were honking, perhaps an argument? They were just under the clouds. Sunday afternoon a group of Sandhill cranes were going north. Very loudly. Hardly any snow left anymore. The ground is very dry. There was hardly any water in the ditches or the fields. It's been very windy, too. Afraid to light the old grass.
