Geese Staying Home In Record Numbers This Year

(Bismarck, ND) — Biologists in North Dakota say they were “blown out of the water” by the results of this winter’s waterfowl survey. The results show that record numbers of Canada geese, a migratory species that normally flies to warmer climates during the winter, stayed in North Dakota this year. During last year’s survey, 29-thousand geese were counted in the state, while 300-thousand were counted this winter. Experts say the geese aren’t migrating as much because of this year’s unusually mild and warm winter.
