Geese!

They are back!

Every year the Canada and Snow Goose flocks return to the Dead Creek Wildlife Area Route 17 West, 1 mile from Addison Four Corners, Vermont off Route 22A.

Addison Four Corners Store is at that intersection
The area isn't far from the Bridge to New York at Fort Henry on Lake Champlain
The viewing area is a long driveway and areas across the street to view the geese.
I recommend bringing an umbrella as you are standing under geese that don't stop at restrooms to freshen up.

  1. Maywyn - we have some flying overhead as well. Lots will stay through the winter too. Such beautiful birds. Never tire of seeing them. Hope you are having a great day.

    1. Hello Debbie,
      Your photos of the changing season cause me to reflect on the color bits here and there that are peeking through. I'll be looking up for more geese this week.

  2. I love geese flying overhead - I love the sound that comes with it. Sadly, we usually only get lone geese flying here in Vegas. Had two in the neighborhood last fall...actually walking down my street! XOXO

    1. Hello Tanya,
      Maybe those geese are scouts looking for new places to land. Walking down the street is hilarious!
      Have a great week-end. Look out for more geese.

  3. I loved geese--and their seasonal migrations--when we lived in northern climes as well, Maywyn. Here in coastal north Florida, the golfers (I'm not a golfer) complain about the geese (and their leavings) that move into the ponds on golf courses and never leave again. Me, I still love any natural living or non-living thing! I have enjoyed browsing your recent posts--thanks for sharing your photos and thoughts.

    1. Hello Mary,
      Glad you enjoy your visit here. Geese do seem to find a place and stick with it. There's a busy intersection on Route 7 and 17 here that over ten years ago a nesting pair made their home. Now, there's a flock of them. They cross the road to the pond, chicks and all, and back again to their nest across the street. Its charming, but I can see complaints when their golf course like tally gets too high.

  4. I love to watch them fly in formation...totally amazing. Nice shot of them.

    1. Thank you, Dee
      I used the clouds to help me zoom to where they were. I'm hoping on the days ahead, they fly low enough to get a closer photo.
