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!
