Goose Roundup, Day 3 - NY Times

41. Back in 1983 I was working for the relocation of the US Army 10th Mountain Division from Camp Hale, CO to Fort Drum, NY in the archaeology tests that by state and federal law precede development. Way off in the distance was a huge almost dark thin cloud of geese. I was astounded, as if some major part of the natural world had been modified. However, I don't live there in Algonquin to Adirondacks Conservation Association's area. However I've noticed Canadian geese in the tri-state area since. Never heard of an airplane problem with them. Maybe it's true they were the migrating geese in one of the Eastern Seaboard' "flyways" where great numbers of birds migrate. The "local" osprey, nests here, returning after DDT control, and flies to Long Island from the northern coast of Brazil. Round the geese up and take them somewhere if they must. How about Fort Drum?
