This large group of Canada Geese was found congregating in the parking lot of the Cisco Systems campus in Richardson, Texas.

It is not entirely clear why the geese have chosen this spot as their gathering place. There is a sizable artificial water feature on the property and several large well manicured fields of grass. The geese in these pictures were feeding on acorns that had collected in the parking lot islands.

These birds were generally tolerant of being observed, and the pedestrians and drivers in the parking lot were courteous and considerate of the geese.
