Geese Fly South

Date: September 1, 2020 - October 31, 2020

Time: 12:00 am

Event Description

Canada geese migrate south because they need open water for food and as a place of refuge from predators. They fly at 40 mph, but can reach 70 mph with a good tailwind. They fly in a V formation with each bird a bit higher than the one in front. Some speculate the lead goose breaks wind and allows the others to draft. Do you know why one side of the V is longer than the other? More birds on that side.
