Atlantic Forecast

Atlantic Flyway Resident Population (AFRP): This
population of large Canada geese inhabits southern
Quebec, the southern Maritime provinces, and all
states of the Atlantic Flyway (Fig. 3).
Surveys during spring 2005 estimated 1,064,700 (+
189,000) AFRP Canada geese in this population
(Fig. 6), about 9% more than in 2004 (P = 0.523).
These estimates have increased an average of 1%
per year over the last 10 years (P = 0.088). The
spring of 2005 was wetter and cooler than average
across AFRP states. Although some flooding
occurred in northeast states, observations during
banding programs indicated gosling production was
at least as high as in 2004. The 2005 fall flight is
expected to be similar to that of 2004. :getdown: :salude:

Had seven geese in a group fly over me this evening. They would have been easy targets.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.
