    Twenty geese just flew north, skimming my tree canopy of Bunnyville. More were off to their right flank and out of view.

    Six geese just skimmed my treetops and were flying northbound faster than usual. Maybe they know a hurricane is developing.

    My lovely geese returned ten minutes ago, finally, barking up a storm due east. Only a few I heard, but that is better than none at all. Imagine I will hear more within the next few hours, for it all, if I happen to remain outside as usual. Meanwhile, my lovely doves have been going strong, ever since daybreak. Still no rain and only a 30% chance today, but my new neighbor's new pond continues to hold water.

    Geese alert, 12 headed over Bunnyville moments ago flying southwest. May have been more this morning (no clue, I was sound asleep). Rain is just off to our north (per radar) with gusts picking up (this report is almost an hour old):

    Geese alert, many honkers headed northbound. Could not count them for the treelines, but they were staggered.

    Interesting unfiled flight plan moments ago. Eighteen honkers were north heading east and out of view, but they made a sudden turn south and flew over my Bunnyville at a rather fast speed. I had chased off Lord Evil maybe thirty minutes earlier but know that he and Lady Evil continue to lurk elsewhere. Actually, he just returned.

    Honkers, a lot of them headed north, loud as could be while skimming my tree canopies. They blocked my count. Light fog remains floating a few feet above my new neighbor's new pond, and I had chased off the hawks from here only thirty minutes prior again... serious drop in morning temps.

    Eight or so honkers to the north just out of range moments ago. They were heading eastbound but took a sudden turn to the north, at the precise point others from the previous day hooked south and flew over my property. They appear to be avoiding something just to the northeast. I did hear one of the red tailed hawks calling from the north maybe thirty minutes ago, too, when I briefly stepped outside. No idea, but perhaps they are the reason. Were probably more geese earlier, I just haven't been outside for long today.

    Small group of honkers just flew from the north and headed southeast. I can now hear others due east potentially preparing for takeoff. Sun is currently trying to break through the clouds

    Roughly 25 honkers just skimmed the treetops of my Bunnyville at high speed, north to south.

    Had to unplug my fountain, in order to confirm barking but no liftoff, yet. It's freezing this morning (stats an hour old). Think it's the coldest morning thus far.
