    While they can't fly for a few weeks, they tend to stay close together. on parade.jpg

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw your photograph was 'follow the leader.' :) I've never seen so many geese in a straight line before.

    There were a couple more in the line but I had to cut them out as it would of been too small to see very much. Bye the way, that is the lagoon that I visit a few times each week.

    I think they are basically adults as they can't fly for 4 or 5 weeks at this time of year.

    they can't fly because they are molting?
