first flock of geese
« on: March 15, 2015, 10:44:24 AM »
Saw & heard my first flock of geese yesterday, about 150 of them flying NNW. Every year I look forward to seeing that, those sort of things and doing the maple sap for me are the start of the new year. When the turkey buzzards show up I consider that the first day of spring. Man, after those couple of nice days this bitter cold wind sure feels nasty, think Iíll stay inside and bake some oatmeal maple syrup cookies today.

I've been seeing several huge flocks flying overhead nearby our house here at The Beach for the past week. All were headed up north. Always a great sight to see. :)

To bad they don't have a Spring season on geese around here, we have a few geese that spend the Winter here!

Also, a lot of them don't go up to the tundra like they used to, many of them spend the Summer in farmers fields!
