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

    Wow, that number is staggering! But I bet it makes for some really good photo shoots! 🙂 Wishing you and yours a beautiful Easter!
