Canada Geese coming home

Canada Geese coming home

Its been a warm winter and they geese coming home early. Its first day of Spring and we still had snow flakes on the way. Just after sunset, a few miles away from Ottawa, there were thousands of Gees in the fields. They all took of at once – the largest cloud I ever seen – imagine this image multiplied 20, 30 times across. We love our Canada Geese.

Canada geese usually start migrating south when the ground begins to freeze in the fall. The trip to the wintering grounds is a quick one—scientists have tracked geese that have flown up to 1,000 km in one day!
Spring migration is a different story. Starting in late winter, the geese make several stops along the way to feed and rest before reaching their breeding grounds throughout Canada.
