The geese are coming back in droves! The sky is alive with the sounds of honking and the glorious sight of chevron positioning. Forward...back...forward....back as one tires, and another pulls up to take over the lead. The geese in the rear of the formation are constantly honking to remind the flock to keep up the speed. Flying in a V pattern, each set of wings create an uplift for the goose behind, making it more aerodynamic and easier to fly with less wind resistance. If one bird is ill, two will leave the formation, following the sick bird to the ground and stay with it, until it can fly once again, or it dies. What a beautiful relationship! The geese remind me that spring is on its way!
Don't forget to turn your clocks forward!
