Coming In

Geese were around all winter.  This has not been unusual for the last decade or so but it was an odd occurrance for large flocks of geese to overwinter here before that.

 

Apon looking at this again, these look like some kind of duck rather than geese.

I cannot remember if I played this song on a Boat Friday or not.

I would say Ducks, Mary.

And...you certainly showed this vid clip before...I recall the distinctive opening scene...
Mary MacADNski: LOL You have a one tracked mind.
Some great shots! Global warming is wreaking all kinds of havoc on migratory patterns - sometimes humans are the beneficiaries, as your company here suggests.
Mary MacADNski: We have lots and lots of ducks migrating here but I had, without even looking, closely assumed they were our very common Canada goose.

I love the way your geese are wheeling together through the sky
Mary MacADNski: Yhey were coming in to land.
I think they may well be ducks Mary
Mary MacADNski: They most certainly are.
You've caught these two flocks very well Mary, I especially like the top one. BTW I'm still enjoying your other series, keep them coming.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Brian. I love those old beach photos and the memories they bring. The niece featured in the beginning is now 29.
i wish that they were heading up here Mary... it's only -17°C today....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: We are in a cool spell and expecting it to warm tomorrow - to bring a nor'easter with wind, snow and rain.
i cannot identify the birds but you got some consistently excellent shots, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Definitely ducks. I had only assumed geese as I was looking at hundreds of geese in the river in front of me.

I can't help with identification, I'm afraid. They make for fine photos, though.
Mary MacADNski: Definitely ducks. I had only assumed geese as I was looking at hundreds of geese in the river in front of me.
Yes, they do look like ducks - a flock of Black Ducks, perhaps - do you get them in PEI?
Mary MacADNski: I think they are black ducks. Yes, we have a large population of them here.
Beautiful images, I thought it was Canadian geese considered the place, but from the pictures it is difficult to go back
Mary MacADNski: Hundreds of Canada geese were in front of me in the river. I captured these birds coming in assuming they were geese but they are definitely ducks.
