The day before I took these pictures, there were about ten times as many geese on the sand bars. (Of course, I didn't have my camera with me!)
We have hundreds of geese that nest on the sand bars every year; hundreds more stop here on their migration south.
I'm still waiting to get a good picture of flock in flight, in their typical "V" formation. It's quite magnificent. These were "talking" about it; a couple did a bit of a "test flight," but the group wasn't quite ready to move on. Perhaps they were waiting for others to join them.
The snow which had fallen a few days earlier was mostly gone, but the temperatures were still around the freezing mark.
