    Wow…those Geese and their babies have travelled a long way.  They have typically been in the grass on the south east side of the lower bridge.  They would’ve crossed a couple street to get to where they are in the picture.  I hope drivers do all they can to avoid harming them.

    “Did not hear any honking”.  But isn’t that what geese do?

      Yes, but these geese have learned “Seattle polite”.

Sorry, comment time is over.
