We have a good many Canada geese in Maryland year round, but the numbers go up in the fall. I heard the geese when I was at Wal-Mart last Saturday and walked over to the edge of the hold pond to see them. There were several hundred on the water. They began to depart in small groups of 8 to 10; then a large number left together.
On Sunday they were back on the playing fields adjacent to water shown above. I went down to the parking area by the fields to get a closer shot, but when they saw the camera, they turned and waddled away.
