Saw a flock of Canadian geese feeding in a field between San Marcos and Seguin yesterday morning.

Early birds!


I'll pray for your goat.

Great movie about geese in flight.

Went by one of my local ponds last week, usually about 3 resident ducks on it, it had at least a dozen, odd for this time of the year.

Residents. I hunt them north of Dallas during early season some years. There are a lot more of them around than people realize. Resident Canadas also fly over or near my house every day either going out somewhere or coming back to roost somewhere. I have run out in my backyard more than once with a really cool sounding old school resonant chamber goose call and gotten them to turn back and circle my house. I do wonder what the neighbors think of me sometimes.

Yes you did. In a field between San Marcos and Seguin. What you've not seen is migrating Canadian geese in Texas in August.

You'll see specs first before dark geese

We had seven ducks on our front pond last week. We do not have residents. This is in Palo Pinto county.

Looked like gadwalls and told my wife that it was weird and that they should not be here.

jumped about 8-10 gadwall off our ranch lake this past sat. (east tx)
Geese are here all year and the numbers keep growing. We had 2 nesting pair this year and now have a mini-flock that will hopefully have imprinted the lake as home.
