Covered in snow geese!

We live on the migratory flyway for bazillions of Snow geese. We get to see a LOT of these guys in the spring and fall. Many of them have been hanging around the Mill Pond in Alexandria as of late, and last Saturday I saw oodles in the fields next to Glengarry Fine Cheese (my FAVOURITE cheese place!) in Lancaster.

Don't miss the exciting vido at the end, a compilation of two days' worth goosies!

  1. Snow geese are pretty awesome as they tend to be in super large flocks. They are hard to get close to aren't they. Try camouflaging yourself in white and you can get pretty close to them. I learned this from the Inuit.

  2. Thank you for the post. I shared that video on Facebook. Such a big congregation! Love to hear them prepping themselves, and then taking off. Hope you come back, Birdies. We love you, in Canada!

  5. Why do we say 'silly goose' when they have the sense to fly south for the winter?

  6. Love the sound of geese. We have Canada geese overflying us and can hear them long before we see them :)

  7. A great read - from the Caribbean to breakfast to the migrating birds - and, I can only imagine what your outfits will be today if it hits the forecasted 14C!

  10. That's the noise of them laughing at stupid humans staying where it is cold. When there are no humans below they make no sound.

  11. One day, a few years back we were at Dave's cottage on Long Point. I wasn't sleeping well and I woke to the strangers sound - almost like coyotes running up and down the street. It was about 6:30 am - I got up, threw my coat over my jammies and went out to look for these "coyotes" - I got to the beach (about 500 feet away) when I realized it wasn't coyotes -but hundreds of Tundra swans flying over the point as they migrated south - totally cool experience
