I live in Ontario, Canada, and usually every year around this time, the geese gather together and fly south in groups.
Today, however, I found their behaviour to be extremely odd.
Around 4:30pm my fiancee, daughter, and I heard the sound of what were thousands
(literally) of geese flying in one direction, all together.
Except that's not the weird part.
Usually they fly south for the winter months. This entire month though, I have noticed the geese flying north. I figured at first they were possibly
heading to their meeting spot before taking off in their usual direction in groups, but have not seen a single goose fly in the direction facing
south. When I saw the amount of geese we witnessed today flying in the wrong direction, it sparked some serious interest.
Can anyone give me insight as to why these geese may have been going the wrong way? I know we are not inaccurate as to the direction we were watching
them fly. Is everything that is happening with the weather changes seriously affecting our wildlife to that extent?
Below is a photo I took with my cellphone when it happened, they were all forming odd shapes like this as they flew. The sky seems dark as it gets
dark earlier here in the winter months (especially since the daylight savings time took effect last week).
Edit to add: In the span of 10 minutes, we witnessed these thousands of geese flying north.
