They (the Lesser Snow Geese) are still about in large numbers. Here they are spread over the entire large field at Terra Nova in Richmond. Earlier on in winter, shortly after arrival, they clumped together nervously in whichever field/school yard was the meal du jour, but at this late date they basically own the place and go wherever they want. They allow you to walk/cycle among them, scarcely raising a goosey eyebrow.
I was standing on the trail across the ditch from the field as they started taking off.
