The lake might have been full of fish, but its surface was missing something. Earlier this week the Dept of Agriculture
packed the geese two or three to a crate and took them to a facility where they were gassed with lethal doses of carbon dioxide, said Carol A. Bannerman, a spokeswoman for the wildlife services division." as quoted in the New York Times.
It seams that the Federal Government has been doing this for a while. They don't want them flying into any of our planes. I guess it is more a a big deal when they take ALL of the 400 geese that live in Brooklyn. 2.5 million people live in Brooklyn and that was all our geese. Maybe people could fly less.
Anyway we rode our bikes over to the Binnen Falls. I took these photos, really. At the bottom of the falls there was a lot of duckweed.
