March Migration

Millions of geese stop on Prince Edward Island for some rest and sustenance every spring and fall in their twice yearly migration. I show some photos most every year.

i remember some of them from the past, Mary, but they are a joy to watch.
Care MacADNski: The bay is just behind me, about 2 km by air, so I see them in the air daily but in this bay, only when I go to town.

Certainly a WOW scene for me, Mary.
Care MacADNski: The noise they make flying overhead is really something. They seem a bit quieter in this type of situation.
Jolies vues sur toutes ces oies.
Care MacADNski: Every year they migrate past here in spring and autumn.
That top shot is terrific with layers of bird, trees, ice... Just lovely!
Care MacADNski: Thank you. I don't go to town much these days and when I do I have time to stop when I want.

A nice annual event to photograph
Care MacADNski: It would be a daily sight until I stopped working. Now, only when I go to town. I see and hear rhem daily overhead because the bay is just behind me, less than 2 km by air.

A handy stop for them on their journey.
Care MacADNski: Yes, because we grow sp much grain and also have the natural sea grasses for food.
This must be a fine sight to see, I like the collage style in the lower picture.
Care MacADNski: Thanks, Brian. I never tire of seeing or hearing the geese.
They are a sight to behold Mary
Care MacADNski: Yes, delightful to see this way. I see them flying by in the sky every day but see them in water only when I go to town.

I can imagine the busyness, and the noise of it all!
Care MacADNski: I hear a lot of noise when they are flying low overhead to land in a bay right behind me, less than 2 km by air. When feeding and resting, it can be noisy as new ones coming in are noisy but the ones already there are resting.
A fine flock!
Care MacADNski: Seen daily when I was commuting.

You captured this beautifully, Those birds are often a nuisance around here but they are a wonderful sight.
Care MacADNski: They really Are a nuisance in New England. We have only a small amount stay as the ones we get are just stopping to rest on their migration north. Yours come from further away.

An important pit stop. Many head to the UK. to enjoy our mild winters.
Care MacADNski: And to New England, just as I explained to Beth
