I've been visiting upstate N.Y. (The Monticello/Swan Lake/Liberty area since April, and until this weekend, have seen tons of Canada Geese. This weekend, I hardly saw any. I didn't see any Friday or Saturday and thought they had all gone, but then I heard some this morning and later in the day saw a flock flying.
Although is is still technically summer, the weather turns colder must faster up in the mountains which makes an early migration feasible.
Where have they all gone and why has this one flock remained? Will some Canada Geese stay for the winter, or are these just late to leave the party?
