Brrrrrr - A Change in the Weather
In the last two evenings, I have been enjoying the sounds of large flocks of geese as they pass over. It's thrilling to hear, and think about the amazing phenomenon of the yearly migration of these birds. I think Regina is on the flight path of migrating Canada geese. For as long as I can remember, October, for me, has been associated with the sounds of geese flying in large numbers overhead.
We have our local geese who have settled here, and stay for the winter on our frozen, barren, inhospitable lake. These geese don't migrate. However when flocks of northern geese begin passing over on their way to southern warmth, we can be pretty sure the seasons are truly changing. I love the sound and sight of these birds following the dictates of nature... but it does mean colder weather is approaching!
