How Cute is this Picture!! I thought The Geese all go down south for Winter. I have seen some fly over my house other day.

I'm Going to Gibraltar Rock and Goose Pond Sanctuary once all the snow melts in March.

They do go south, but I estimate about 700 geese hung around this pond and area during this Winter. The picture shows just a part of them.

Gilbralter Rock, that area looks very senic (Wisconsin river valley). Bring enough memory cards. Can't wait for Spring to arrive.

You been to Gibraltar Rock? It only 40 Minutes from my house my parents won't climb up to the top of the hill because there old and have week legs. They both will be sixty this year. When I start going to the State parks my brother will have to go with me instead because I don't trust myself alone on those trails where I might see snakes and get scared. I'm very afraid of Snakes and I don't trust myself on those trails or do my parents.

No, but I've been to Starved Rock in Illinois. From web-sites, Gilbraltar Rock looks higher than Starved Rock which is along the Illinois River.

The geese that came down here act like they are staying in the South. Your picture shows why ;-) This is probably another manifestation of the Goreble Warming.

I read his book (An Inconvenient Truth) on global warming. It’s filled with the latest graphs and charts submitted by scientists around the world. All this data indicates only one positive result: the rate of global warming is now beyond control. I’m not a birder (photograph birds), but I can see a lot of meals out there.

I ate one of the non-migrating geese about four years ago. Got a lot of negative comment for my "misdeed" but it was sure yummy; thought I was being sneaky but got caught. Peeled out the breasts, sliced into steaks and southern fried...gravy, mashed potatoes, and sauteed green beans and onions....a real feast. Too many eyes at Lost Prairie to eat another 'pet.'

It should start Getting warming very soon just Today I saw two sand hill Cranes flying north. There not up here normally until April and with geese already up here. That must be in early sign of Spring.
