Goose Crossing

Ducks yesterday.
Geese today?
Moose tomorrow?
Am I on some kind of bird kick? Waiting for my gaggle of geese. I'm going to be here awhile, I bet. Here we are mid-yesterday's storm in the Stroudwater section of the city on outer Congress Street and not a goose in sight. They have fled for the winter. We are still here hanging on. 
Who's the smarter?
I must admit this is a useful sign during the summer. There can be lots of back and forth action here. I've seen them crossing many times. On the other hand, out our way there's a moose crossing sign. I've never seen one there, ever.
That said, I'll probably hit one tonight.
Look out, Bullwinkle!

  1. Hopefully the geese are off somewhere warm and away from the storm! I hope to see a photo of a moose on here sometime soon!

  2. Geese tend to hide when the weather is fierce. You don't appear to have gotten a lot of snow but I bet the winds were horrific!

  3. Looks cold ( and pretty) I hope both you and the Geese are doing well.

  4. I've seen lots of signs, but never one protecting a goose. There are several places here in this town where some residences and businesses need a sign such as this! Looks pretty wintery there!

  5. OK.Corrections are in order.
    Friday, driving to work past this exact site, there were about 12 geese, waddling all in a perfect row, heading toward the water. They have not flown the coop. ;-)

    The moose sign was put there years ago because a car hit a moose at that exact spot and the driver was killed.

  6. Honestly, would the world really be a worse place with a few less Canada geese?

  7. The strangest sign of this kind I have ever seen was 'tank crossing' sign, and you can't hit one of these...

  9. That is one very snowy and chilly picture. I like looking at it from the warmth of Arizona. Speaking of geese, I think some of them have been hanging out at the golf course right behind where I live. They do make quite the racket when they fly over.

  10. We've had an influx of geese here. I wonder. . .

  11. That looks so cold! The moose probably wait until you're not around before they cross the road.

    I saw where you won a trophy. It was an upset of sorts. The letters PGA come to mind.

  14. Pretty shot but I'm glad to not be there in the snow. We still don't really have any!

  16. There's a street near my place with a turtle crossing sign.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a moose pic!

  18. I love this shot. The two yellow signs really pop. But in a snow storm color does seem to stand out. Stay warm, Birdman. And beware of moose.

  19. Beautiful shot. I wish we had that much snow.

  20. Well, Birdman, from the forecast maps I have seen, you and my other New England friends are in for an exciting couple of days. Quite a storm. I hope you have plenty of firewood, lots of candles, and some books to read.

  21. This sign shows a goose and goslings, but this isn't gosling season. Must wait until spring. If the highway department put up a moose sign they were just pulling your leg.
