    They have been flying north over my house for 2 days.
    I did see a couple groups coming from the river[east]going west I imagine to feed.

    We don't hardly ever see any around here in the spring or fall.

    Thousands of geese moving into the area today. Numbers have been steadily increasing the last few days.

    Watched a massive, what looked like a migration out of canton area, yesterday afternoon. Steady stream of birds heading NW, from about 3:30 till dark. Heard a few coming back after dark, but looked like most were packing up and heading out. Amazing how many snows are in the area.

    Waterdog - friends killed a bunch Sunday down by Meredosia. Said they were all adults. Had a really hard time getting them to finish. What are you seeing ? NW wind today will probably keep them wherever they got to in the last few days. Juvies still in Arkansas ?

    Lol. Probably just a 1 time event anyway. West is better.
