Thats a large flock, Care, be nice to see.
Care MacADNski: Lots of geese stop here on their way south and don't leave. Same with touists. The second shot is from my place.
Je suis impressionnée par le nombre d'oiseaux.
Care MacADNski: They could be having a feeding stopover or maybe are residents.

What a large flock of Geese. I am going birding today with Chris on the Somerset Levels, so we will see mainly water birds
Care MacADNski: How wonderful to hear. I suppose you have fewer birds that migrate to warmer climates than we do.

What can it be they're eating?
Care MacADNski: This is a tidal river so goodies are washed in every day. Geese are primarily vegetarians so there is plenty to eat. They also eat grain, corn and other seed from bare, harvested grain fields. They need to visit the water though.
It looks like everyone got the memo, Care! grin
Care MacADNski: Yes, meeting called to discuss which open grain fields they should go to for breakfast.

Again a great set of pictures, Care. I wonder if these birds move on after winter?
Care MacADNski: Canada geese migrate. Our residents usually fly south. Some geese from really far north stop here for food on their way by and decide this is warm enough so stay for the winter. This is tourist season for northern geese. In spring these will fly north again and ours will return from their southern vacations.

This looks like hyper activity.
Care MacADNski: They sleep in water overnight. The tide has just gone out and they are having breakfast. They will fly off for the day to eat in bare fields and come back to their cozy warm, wet beds for the night.
This looks like manageable winter Care
Care MacADNski: Absolutely. This is a southern vacation for the northern Canada geese. Our residents have gone south and we welcome the northern tourists.
I am sitting here really enjoying both of these pictures Care.
Care MacADNski: Thank you so much, Brian. The second is here at my place.

Those geese must produce a lot of noise. They should also produce fertiliser rich soil.
Mainly Canda geese by the look of them??
