to the winter sky.
safe travels.

If they are flying south for the winter, they are late. No one told hem that the early bird gets the worm.

Wonderful haiku-like post, in pictures and words today.

I'm wondering if they were "honking" along the way. They tend to be a noisy bunch.

Like indian smoke signs,flying geese write things in the sky..

Birdman said...

We have two that sped the summers and fall at the pond down the road. At about 9 each night they go honking by... out for the night?

Brilliant 'in flight' shots Brattcat, I can imagine that they would be honking as they fly wouldn't they? btw I'm keeping cool vicariously through your beautiful winter images!!

Seems odd that they are still around. Love the sounds they make as they fly in formation. Amazing creatures, as are all birds.

Beautiful - and we went south with them . . .

Facinating birds until they land in the pond adjacent to your property. 25 to 48 is sometimes the norm. Then they migrate to your yard and eat anything that looks tasty but they don't take without leaving their form of cash. Messy creatures but cool when flying.

Love these big birds. Incidentally, my post for tomorrow talks about 13 of them, living in a very unusual place

I often wonder what we look like to the birds flying overhead.

Lowell said...

We'll seem 'em down this way before long! We had some for a long time in Stone Creek and then they disappeared...

They sure are messy!

The perfection of the spacing and the straightness of the line are really special. Nice shots, brattcat. Of course, they might just have been working on their precision flying exercises, not flying south. These days I see Canada geese in New England all winter long.

Wonderful shots... the second one almost looks like a zipper in the sky!

Great set of pictures and words ... a visual gift!

I agree with Doug. Beautiful.
