Morning Fly-In

I'm told that the geese at West Davis pond don't migrate, but they did disappear this summer when the pond dried up.  Lucky that we can enjoy their antics all winter though!  They don't seem to have any predators at the pond, so over the 2 1/2 years that I've lived here I've seen this goose population double.  They get their breakfast at a field about a half mile from here, and then at some designated moment, they all take flight and return to the pond.  They provide fair warning; the fly-in is a very loud event.  After a few minutes they settle down, and then all is quiet on the pond again.   Happy Thanksgiving to all my blog friends!
