Linda McNulty called to report that the geese are present today (9:15am on 11/6). John Higgins went earlier and they were NOT present; this is a similar pattern to yesterday, so presumably the geese move around in the early morning.
Again, to get here, from Valencia turn south on Commerce Ct, then take a left on Renaissance Dr and follow it to the end. Park and walk south twenty yards to the fenceline.
Thanks Linda and John!

Likewise, they could be one of the smaller races of Canada Geese - which are also rare in the area. If you go, take good notes and videos, recordings or photos!
