When Canadian Geese Get Protective

This flock Canadian Geese were in a field near the plant I work at in PA. They were just walking through the field feeding when another flock came in honking from above.
This completely changed their posture.
They honked back a warning to stay away or fight.
They really meant business and the other flock left the area.
I really enjoy how demonstrative these Canadian Geese can be.

No surprise that the old Romans used geese as watchdogs at their capitol. They mean business! Good one!

It's interesting how geese communicate with each other, that's for sure!

Very nice pictures of the geese! They are really pretty.
Couldn't help but laugh at Tom's comment about Defor!

Geese are like that and don't like any kind of intruders.
