Travelers afoot


Over the last few weeks, we monitored migratory waterfowl movements, not in any systematic way, but sporadically across central North America. So, here’s the current data from Atlanta: traveling Canada geese are resting and catching some rays.

Hopefully these keep on moving…south…or west. Whatever!

    We have a lot of ponds in our business “park” and I have been watching the geese as they raise their goslings and get them ready to migrate. Last couple of weeks a lot of airborne activity but I can’t tell if they are actually leaving or just practicing or what. I guess I don’t know enough about their life cycle and behavior. Last year there were quite a few of them on the pond even as ice was pretty well formed.

    Ah, the goose version of ADHD laggards?
