There's no island in this part of the Fox River called Goose Island. It occurred to me that this huge congregation of Canada Geese actually made up an island. Thousands and thousands of geese were gathered along the edges of open water, creating an unbelievable sight.
Unfortunately this area of the river is difficult to approach and in flat Illinois there are few points of high elevation from which to capture a broad view. This was taken from a car window as we traveled over the bridge. And no, I was not driving the car (this time).
