There was a time when the flocks of geese flying North in the spring, or South in the fall would blacken the skies. Now we have geese that hang around all year and they fly in much smaller flocks. They fly around and it looks as though they are leaving but they settle down on the tidal areas of the dykelands and manage somehow to eke out an existence through the winter months. Cold doesn't bother them. They breed in much colder climes than these I believe. But in the spring and in the fall they are much noisier and the sound of even quite small flocks winging their way overhead is enough to make you run out to watch as they arrow across the sky above.
