Geese sleep in Home Depot parking lot at night

Night shift at Home Depot has geese sleeping in the parking lot at night. There was a small bird flying inside the building, as well. The Geese sleep in a strict "V" formation. They are probably getting ready to fly together, again. They need to get rest before flying. They slowly and lazily walk away from humans that come near them. The geese sure made a mess in the parking lot. Well, someone else will clean it up. The geese are ready to walk around anywhere they want to. Canada geese are continuing their adventures. Canada Geese have more exciting things ahead of them.

It is estimated that there are at least 7 million Canada Geese present in the area of North America.

  1. "7+ million Canada Geese in North America" - that is not bad for a species that was critically close to extinction up until the 1960s.

    More interesting statistics:

    "According to the Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation, crop damage by Canada geese birds resulted in an average annual compensation claims of more than $416,000 from 2015 to 2018."

    "The birds can also be a traffic hazard, he said. From 2015 to 2018, an annual average of approximately $372,528 in unfortunate car crash claims in Manitoba could be attributed to Canada geese, according to Manitoba Public Insurance."
