Flying north for the.....winter?

So I think every Canada goose this side of Lake Placid was on Beardsley Pond yesterday morning. I was returning from the transfer station when I caught eye of them. Not being in a duck blind, the minute I stopped my truck, they started moving. The noise they were making was amazing!

Couple of things I noticed: geese do a lot of standing around and they all face the same direction much of the time. I mean hundreds and hundreds of birds, all facing the same direction. At the same time. Amazing. Now, I readily admit that they were all either taking off or getting ready to do so. But I just never knew they all looked in the same direction like!

  1. Probably because the area where the food is most likely faces them all?
