Canada Geese – Just Before Sunset

Just Before Sunset

     I was north of Hope, Idaho, near the Clark Fork driftwood site waiting for something to happen when this pair of Canada Geese, Branta canadensis, flew low on the horizon just before sunset.   I actually heard them before seeing the feathered duo as they communicated with each other in flight.   Their distinctive, plaintive, honking call along with the sun descending through the clouds just said it was day’s end.
