Honky Tonks

If you live at a latitude similar to Calgary's, The Canada Goose is a common sight in the skies at this time of the year. If you listen closely, you will hear the faint honking spilling down from the skies from migrating geese such as these. In and around Calgary such as on this slough the geese will make daily foraging trips to farm fields nearby where they forage for grain. They will stick around untill the weather turns for the worst before migrating south to warmer climates. It is interesting if you have never observed the Canada Goose much that they have a very close family bond. Foe instance upon landing, you can see the different family units peel off in smaller clusters before they alight. Intersting birds.
