As people rush to get the Chambers Bay Golf Course ready for the U.S. Open this June, the Canada Geese have been enjoying it. I counted a flock of about 240 geese today. I think they were a mix of Canada and Cackling Geese. The two species used to be one, but now the small ones are classified as the “Cackling” species.
When the geese land, a flock turns into a gaggle! These geese did circle the grounds in a circular pattern and then they all landed together!
It appears that the construction of the Chambers Bay Golf course and surrounding structures is not yet complete. There was a crane there today. Here is today’s work in progress:
No worries though, there are still 107 days before the opening day!
