I love to watch the geese, too. We have lots of them around here. One day, driving across the Arkansas River, I watched a flight pass overhead in an absolutely perfect vee formation. Both legs of the vee were the same length! I'd never seen one so perfect before. It was exciting!
About two weeks ago I was worried, for as I came out of work I saw Hawks flying around, and was worried about the babies. I don't know a whole lot about geese, but low and behold the next day as I pulled in the babies were there unharmed;of course Mom and Dad were right there with them, and must have fended off the predator. I didn't know if geese had the ability, but they do.
