Canadian Geese in Minnesota

Canadian Geese

At first, I liked them. Many Canadian geese are flocking to Minnesota. I’ve never seen so many of them. The locals tell us that they come here, mate and then head south.

So — they frolic and play in the water.

Then, while I’m driving, they decide they are going to walk out on the road. Or, better yet, they’ll fly so close to the car that I am swerving to avoid them.

Yesterday, they walked quickly into the road and when cars were trying to avoid them, they honked at us.

The locals tell us that after they mate they get very territorial. But — they haven’t mated yet so I have yet to understand their behavior.
