Geese ?


Recommended Posts

Lately I am seeing flocks of geese fly over the house, one group of at least twenty or so in the morning and in the evening. My question is why ? I see other geese around ponds with their young so what is up with the ones flying around, are these the young from last year that havnt settled down yet? I wish it was early goose season now because like always, 2 weeks before the early season in fall most of these local geese around here dissapear. I live in northern MN.

What you are seeing is called a molt migration which are non nesting geese that are last years young. They migrate around Memorial weekend every year. I see alot of flocks when fishing Mille Lacs and Osakis all headed north. They say they fly to Canada and spend the summer there. Why this happens is a mystery. shocked

Several flocks with 150 to 250 geese flew over Mille Lacs on Friday.

They're all over the place right now, see them at my place, saw them when fishing Miltona & Osakis this weekend. I'd say flocks from 20-60 birds in them.
