All year, there’s seemed to be considerably fewer Canada geese (AKA ‘sky carp’ or ‘flying rats’) in Ames Park than in previous years. Last week was no exception. The big flocks were landing south of the 5th St. bridge. Note the lack of goose poop on the walking trail in Ames Park.
The City’s river plantings tactic is evidently working, though it remains to be seen what’ll happen once the fencing is removed. Kudos are in order!
