I pass this farm field in Durham on 155a regularly en route to UNH. There are often large flocks of Canadian geese foraging in the fields. Apparently many flocks do not fly as far south as they once did, as fields such as these are sometimes available for food when there is not lots of snow cover. Many people see geese as pests, but they are very beautiful creatures. Seeing flocks flying in v-formations is one of my favorite autumn sight, along with the powerful honking call.
