It's almost the middle of November and these silly geese have decided not to go south this year.
I have noticed that more and more geese decide to stick around for the winter each passing year.
This may come as a relief to many people south of the border who feel that Canada Geese are a huge nuisance. I can sympathize. They are a noisy crew, they can get a little belligerent and they leave their droppings all over the place. On the positive side though, they are strangely graceful animals and I admit to having a soft spot for them.
Perhaps this is a sign of global warming or perhaps it's easier for them to find food up here than it used to be in the winter. I really didn't notice as many geese flying south this year as I usually do. Hopefully they know something that we don't and that we could be in for a relatively mild winter. One can always hope.
