Canada Geese in the Air

We have a lot of Canada Geese in the area now.  I think that a lot of these geese are migrating from up North.  Some will stay here for the Winter and quite a few will move on South and to the Southwest and Southeast a bit.  We have a lot of ponds, and lakes in our neighborhood and general community here in Cumberland County, Tennessee.  In the greater region we also have several very large rivers.  All this water is a big attraction for having Canada Geese.  We additionally have a lot of golf courses and cattle pastures around where the geese can graze on the grass.

Geese eat grasses, seeds, and certain aquatic plants.  These geese can be heard in flight for a long way off.  This was helpful in my getting these pictures.  I took these pictures in my yard on Sept. 15, 2012 and again on Sept. 16, 2012.    Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. i hope it’s a while, yet, before i hear the wings overhead.

    • Hi Theresa, I think that our stormy weather here may have been the reason why the geese were unsettled. We had a lot of rain yesterday. Down the hill about 35 miles, Cookeville, TN, got over six inches of rain and had street flooding yesterday. No flooding here where I am. Have a great day!

      • now, you can go ahead and send the rain down if you’d like! 🙂 we sure could use some! had 1/4 inch after weeks of nothing.

  2. I too am hearing Canada Geese flying overhead in the morning- I like this time of year. Nice photos!

  3. I don’t know why, but we have had few geese here this summer. Perhaps the drought has made them move on to other places.

  4. The geese are here, too. Everywhere … lots of honking going on. It is the sound of Fall.
