We decided to run to the Super Walmart in Paris...I did not ask to drive through the strip pits on the way...just thought we would go on and get our bit of shopping done. Instead, half way through the drive there...we saw all these birds.
You cannot tell much from this photo, but there were snow geese, white-fronted geese, and regular Canadian geese. We did a little detour to try to get closer to them....no luck. Just slowed us down. But still worth the effort.
So we go on and even though we didn't have a lot to get, it seemed to take forever before we headed home. It had started to warm up a bit by then...we get back near the strip pits and we could see line after line of geese in the distance. So Roger sped up...still did not get very close to them, but we could see some were actually going to the main big old strip pit. So we cut through to them...we were at the one end of the strip pits, and down towards the other end, this is some of what we saw.
Again, snow geese, and even though they are the only ones that really show up, Roger was looking through his spotting scope and there were also the white-fronted geese and Canadian geese. Plus, though there are none here in my photos, there were a few swans.
Maybe one day there will be as many of them as there used to be of the Canadian Geese...take a look at this old post from 2009. I have not seen that many geese out there since then. Be sure to click in enlarge the views.
Just have to leave you with this latest video of Simon's cat...
