Preparing for Flight

The Fall is getting late, and the geese feel Winter in the air.
As the cold has begun to settle in, the geese have begun to gather.
 The lake is often full of geese on a sunny afternoon. 
Local geese stay and move South to open water as things freeze.
 Smaller ponds already have some ice on them. 
 Geese work together taking turns churning the water around as they swim to keep it open. Some leave to feed while others stay on the water, then leave when more return.
Soon all the geese will head South because Winter always wins as the calendars turn to November in GriggsDakota.
