Canada Geese Sighting Canada Geese Sighting

Today, I saw (and heard) the first Canada geese of the season. This is another sign that spring is coming! Here's a poem about Canada geese from the website


By Belle Schmidt

There is no traffic jam in the sky

when you spread your wings and fly

south along a boundless,

trackless pathway.
In undulating V-formation

unerringly you cross the nation,

wings waving to people far below.

Day after day,
like a precision drill team,

sun catching your feathers’ gleam,

in and out you weave and waver;

but never stray.
Your hoarse honking, its purpose clear,

although strident to our ear,

conveys to the flock aloft;

there’s no delay.
Guided along by an unseen force,

you follow an instinctive course,

and make us beneficiaries

of this wonderous display.

My first sign that spring was coming came last week when I saw a dead skunk in the middle of the road. Sure sign it's warming when the skunks come out of hibernation.
