Geese at SCCC

There is a patch of open water on the watery cul-de-sac behind the community college.  Canada geese have stopped here; I can only guess that these are an early contingent heading north.  This was frozen solid two weeks ago.

They didn't want to shake my hand, but they weren't too disturbed by my presence either.  You can see how little the ice has receded up the bank.  In a week where I'm standing will be impassable mud. hip deep!

  1. Yep, they are heading north. We have some who stay all year (in Ontario) and some who spend the winter in the south. But I'm definitely hearing them overhead every day now.

  2. Flocks of geese reside at Lake Merritt in Oakland. The only difference? No snow. Ever.

  3. I can't hardly imaging Canada geese without snow :-)


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
