“Something told the wild geese it was time to go. Though the fields lay golden something whispered–“Snow.” Rachel Lyman Field
The sight of Canadian geese flying over in “V” formation signals a change of season to me. I watch Canadian geese make tracks as they cross the lake. They like this large frozen over lake. Ice fishermen don’t come here, and so they have it to themselves.
Clever geese; gorgeous too!
Thanks! It was fun to watch them waddle on the lake.
I filmed some Canadian geese yesterday in Scotland 🙂
I’ll stop by your blog to see the it.
Our Site is Fishing and Wildlife News 🙂
I’ll be coming over for visit to see and learn about your local fishing and wildlife. 🙂

Would you like to share a link to the video with the geese?
Please shoosh the Canada Geese home … they bring Spring!
hope so 🙂
Great!!!!…. send them my way to poop on all the playgrounds. I see you have never cleaned up a six yr old who rolls repeatedly in the so called clean grass 🙂
lucky you 🙂

Ack! I’m not ready for the geese to come back yet, but we’re sure having an unseasonably warm winter in Virginia. I hope that doesn’t mean days on end of lethal heat in July and August.
It does seem like a short, mild winter this year in the Midwest too.
Beautiful photo and verse!
thank you and the whisper was heard because it snowed 🙂
flying over in “V” formation signals: when I hear them, still, since my childhood, I’m shocked to my bones – don’t know why …
We remember that haunting sound, like the call of a loon on a twilight lake. Beautiful memory Frizztext.
I was never a huge fan of Canadian geese. The ones on the NIU campus chased me a time or two too many, and they crowd boat launches here and make a big mess. However, now that I hunt them, I’m plenty happy to see them come Fall. It turns out they’re a lot smarter than you think.
I agree with you that they are smart. I’ve been lucky with ducks and geese not having chased me. As long as didn’t go for my fishing line, I wouldn’t seeing them at the boat launch. 🙂 Thanks for insight.
