While standing at the Brentwood I-64 Metrolink station in St. Louis at about 8 AM this morning, I heard a cacophony of high pitched honking geese flying over. Fully expecting to see snows, I looked
up to see a flock of about 35 small, short necked Canadas flying southwest. They seemed a bit larger than the cackling geese that were in Forest Park a few years ago along with the Ross', but I think that's what they were.
After a long dry spell, I also saw the peregrine pair perched on the north face of Barnes-Jewish Hospital today. I'd seen them in flight occasionally, but they haven't perched in that spot since the prolonged tuckpointing
or some kind of maintenance finished a few weeks ago. A welcome sight from my office.
