Good Afternoon, got a chance to get on quick, Thanks Rail, no the wood in the TH is the artificial wood, this floor is real oak that has to be sanded and varnished. Gordon, I haven't seen any geese yet soooo I think I'll put the summer tires on for a little while, plus the winter ones are studded so they won't let me yet. Frank, thanks! well I got the wheels sand blasted yesterday and today epoxy primed and painted them, now in a couple days I'll get the tires mounted so I can get them on the PU. Pics are before and after.

Wow. Avoiding the jokes at the moment, a little research reveals that there are 7 subspecies of Canadian Geese. Way too much detail for this thread. What I did learn was that there are basically three varieties of the "Common Canada Goose Group": a) Atlantic (or Eastern), b) Interior (or Central, or Hudson Bay, Todd's), and c) Moffitt's (or Western or Great Basin).

Since they each have their own migratory patterns and habitats, it would probably be somewhat safe to say if you see them in "SE Canada and NE USA" they are "Eastern." If you see them in the "West" they are Western. West is mostly west of the Rockies. Western are common in Utah and Colorado. If you seen then in SE USA and North-eastern Seaboard, they are Interior.

There is more information about geese in the far west reaches of Canada and Alaska. I will let inquiring minds perform their own additional research.

This can also be known as TMI (Too Much Information).

It is easy to tell a western from an eastern goose. Their migration routes are basically north and south. Therefore if you see them in the west they are the western variety and if you see them in the east they are the eastern cousins!!! LOL. Had a hard time typing that with a straight face and without snickering. I have no idea and have yet to ask one which group they belong to.

If it was up to me there would not be a goose problem. However the environmentalists seem to like them. They do look neat when flying by in the big V's but can clean a field faster than a combine. Lived on a farm when younger and geese were not our friends.

Each goose drops about a pound and a half of poop a day. Yikes. And it takes just 7 minutes for grass to go from beak to butt. I counted 60 geese on one green while golfing. You get the picture. I tried to picture the guy with the greens mower mowing the grass. Probably looked like a manure spreader with a brown rooster tail. YUCK, double YUCK!

Anyway we are starting to see the big V's around here. That is way earlier by a couple weeks than I remember. Another sign of the coming seasons.

Note: Read Charles note after I posted this. Thanks for the correct information. I looked at the map and it appears our geese to California and not Texas. Sorry for the misleading information.

Oh, it gets worse. the AOU (American Ornithologists' Union) has divided the Canada goose into:
Atlantic Canada goose
Interior Canada goose
Giant Canada goose
Vancouver Canada goose
Dusky Canada goose
Lesser Canada goose

Then there is the cackling goose, which, in July 2004, the AOU's Committee on Classification and Nomenclature split the cackling goose off from the Canada goose.

FYI: Voice Call: males give a lower pitched hwonk, females a higher hrink.

Confused yet? Want more?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_goose
Canada Geese, Canada Goose Pictures, Canada Goose Facts - National Geographic

And, yes, the lead position in the "Vee" is rotated between the birds. That position consumes the most energy.

Now, why am I typing this?

Geez guys, way TMI. All I know about the Geese is that they tear everything up and leave a huge mess. Try to do my best to keep them away from me.
