Too many honkers?

“Ten times as many Canada geese spend the winter in Oregon as they did 20 years ago. Now instead of one subspecies of Canada goose, the dusky, there are seven. Now, instead of the 25,000 geese that wintered in Oregon, there are 250,000…..”  Agriculture & Geese

    one of the ponds (we call them lakes here) i fish now has 5 families of geese up from 1 a couple of years ago

    on any given spring day you’ll find up to 100 visitors looking for a little r&r, maybe even mates

    overall global warming sucks…however the difference in surviving bird populations (locally at least) is staggering

    because of the geese and ducks we have bald eagles actually nesting nearby

    because of the eagles even the carp are starting to look up

    happy easter

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
