The white dots in the distance are gulls.
I don't know how many geese are still around in the Lower Mainland, whether elsewhere in Richmond or on Westham Island in Delta--or marshes in between. A lot have made the traditional next leg of the trip down to the Skagit Valley in Washington State.
I'm trying to gather data on snow goose feeding and schoolyard damage in Richmond to help a budding ornithologist with a science project. If you are a Richmondite and have knowledge of fields that have been affected this winter, I would appreciate hearing about it. The link to my email is on the top right of this page. Thanks.
P.S. Schoolyards I currently know that have been damaged are Garden City (above), Blundell, and Walter Lee. I expect that several others, particularly on the west side of the island, have also been goosed.
