Do they really stay year round?

I'd be surprised! I can understand them staying here where it's relatively mild, but not in Ontario!

It's a nice picture, Marilyn.

Yes, Paul, although we do see the big V's of honking geese heading south, some think this is a fine place to spend the winter--to the annoyance of many human residents who would like to be rid of them for part of the year! (They do look funny when we see them sitting on the ice on the river. It certainly doesn't look comfortable!)

I love all the subtle colors in this photo, Marilyn. Greetings from the land of the snowbirds, Mary

Many thanks, blai and Mary ... from one of the Canadians who, like some of the geese, stay here all winter! Greetings, Marilyn

Here's the proof that some chose to overwinter here!
