As long as they can find open water and food, they will stay. Geese dont leave because of the cold, they leave because they lack access to water and food.

We still have some mallards around here in Hastings because they have open water and are still finding food. The parking lot of the local grain mill usually has a couple hundred mallards sitting in it eating waste grain off the train tracks.
