Bill,Great idea! It would be good to get an idea of pairs, and if possible nest locations, while nesting is going on. Maybe later an idea of young produced. What area did you want to cover? At Stewart Park yesterday during a brief cruise through in the taxi I tallied at least 16 pairs of geese plus several others that were not obviously paired. I don't know whether the pairs have nests, and if so whether they commute to Stewart Park to graze.--Dave NutterOn Apr 08, 2014, at 09:48 PM, Bill Evans wrev...@clarityconnect.com wrote:Sometimes it goes by so fast you hardly have time to reflect\Tons and tons of potential reflection swept under the bridge\So I inject the following peculiar observation\I’m sitting in my office across from Agway working late tonight, ~7:45pm, and I hear calls of geese and look out the window\I see two geese, presumably a pair, flying low (100 ft agl) circling back south, I think toward the pair’s nest site\The question arises: Where are these geese going and how many such breeding pairs are there in the Cayuga Inlet floodplain?I’m guessing 10 pair, and I mull over lunchtime walks looking for gosslings in a month or so\Will report back with findings\Welcome any assistance or reports\Bill Ep.s. this is not like counting earthworms crossing the sidewalk in the rain.--Cayugabirds-L List Info:Welcome and BasicsRules and InformationSubscribe, Configuration and LeaveArchives:The Mail ArchiveSurfbirdsBirdingOnThe.NetPlease submit your observations to eBird!--
