Geese and their migration to Arizona.


If you are out and about driving you will see Geese in in v formation, why you ask? First lets discuss why geese migrate – usually they fly south for the winter, I would oh wait I did. Geese like to take  advantage of circumstances, warmer weather generally means more food and optimal environments for their off spring. The reason they fly in that v formation is that this affords them the opportunity to waste less work on flying it actually breaks the wall of air that they fly into. The swirling air also helps push the birds behind the other and it allows them to watch and communicate with each other.

Geese are great looking birds but if they become to numerous they can be a hazard, they will attack if you get to close and they will defecate anywhere. This defecating on cement or parking lots areas is really, really slippery so please be careful walking. This morning on the way into work along the 101 they were in a field eating and there were probably over 100.

Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 By Sean Peick Cronkite News “More than 2,200 wildlife strikes reported to FAA since 1990” at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.

OK I don’t know why but I do get a little nervous flying, I used to fly quite often and now a few times each year. But usually on takeoffs and landings my palm sweats a bit even though I’m usually in my favorite seat 12D (just for you Ryan) on my favorite airlines Southwest. For the record to my knowledge of over at least 100 flights – no bird strikes on my plane!

But in reality I guess that is not to bad, 110 per year or about one every 4 days but I’m still WOW you know what I mean. A considerable amount of money is spent each year on keeping birds and wildlife away from airfields and everybody will remember that flight in NY and how Captain Sully worked that (Miracle on the Hudson) and those were geese.

So a BIG hats off to the everyday pilots who have to take action on those rare events and Thanks for keeping us safe as we fly home or on business. Thank You Southwest, the pilots, flight attendants and ground crew you make our journey safe – from a loyal flyer and BIG fan of yours.
