Geese Feeding

The geese are coming in for a landing

so they can join the several thousand already on the ground.

The farmer harvested the grain more than a month ago, but there was a lot left on the ground, and the geese are laying in reserves for their long migration.

A while ago, someone asked where I live. Well, if you cross the line of trees, the Carp River, and the major road, you get to the houses. I live about 20 houses east of here.

I used to love watching them at the Experimental Farm fields! Thanks for sharing them!

I see them gather in the fields after harvest here. Interesting that the flocks are always lead by older females;)

I watched Pelicans over the weekend flying high in the late afternoon.....soon the geese will be in my skies.
I love watching migration.

That is a lot of geese!
They do make quite a mess. Bet the field takes on a whole different look. :)

Geese do seem to thrive in the hybrid landscape we have created.

Question: Any clue as to why it's called "Carp River?" It struck me as odd, since Eurasian carp are an exotic species.
