500 Geese and Ducks

I can’t confirm the numbers exactly but did a quick count of about 1/4 of the image. It looks like somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 Canada Geese and unknown ducks. Hey, I would like to think of myself as a birder but need to get out the Audubon guides! Still an impressive collection of birds on this Cowichan Valley field.

You will notice how the colour of the light has not changed much in the past week, I guess this is what a west coast winter looks like.
