Mass Migration

As I was driving to Pet Smart this afternoon, I couldn't help notice the amount of geese everywhere. It was amazing and beautiful.

Here in New Jersey we are used to geese. There is a bunch that stay here all year round. We also seem to be in their flight pattern for their migration. However, this year seems different. There are a lot more. And not only the canadian geese with the black heads, but the white geese as well. I saw thousands of geese today within a half an hour ride to Pet Smart. I have this feeling it's going to be a rough winter and the geese know this and are not sticking around like they usually do.

I'm gonna take some pics if I remember to bring my camera with me. There is a lake in the middle of a horse track that is covered with white geese. People stop on the side of the road because there are so many geese you can't see the water or the surrounding grass.

Below is a little sample of what will be going on in my area weather wise:
