Almost standing room only....

I made a quick run through the strip pits again today...the first little pond I pass had more geese on it than I had ever seen there at one time.
There were White-fronted Geese mixed in with the Canada Geese.  There was weeds between me and the pond.  I did try to get out but that sort of agitated them.  Some flew away.
The photo above along with the ones below were take at the big strip pit.









All of these can be clicked on to expand the view, so click on them, and notice in the last three photos just how many are sleeping.  Even out on the water.

And on the way home, I went by the pond I showed in the first two photos...this is what was going on there:


I am assuming they were tired...it was the middle of the afternoon, and almost all of them were like this.

Wow!! I wonder if they had come there to eat, and then they all took a nap? Kind of like us!

that is a heck of a lot of geese. They must have heard what was happening in our neck of the woods and decided to hang around your area for a few days of rest!!

That's a huge gaggle of geese! So funny that they all seem to be napping.

Tons of geese! Lucky you to have seen some white-fronted geese. I have been looking for them but haven't seen any lately!

Must be a lot of good eating there! :) And must be a protected area, as well. They sure seem relaxed!

Wonderful to see so many!

Wow, that's a lot of geese. It reminds me of the shots I took in Galveston of a lot of birds by the water.
