This morning I spoke with Eric Nelson, manager of the Humboldt Bay Wildlife Refuge to talk about this weekend's Goose Fly-off. If you get out the refuge before sunrise you will see an amazing sight. Thousands and thousands of Aleutian Cackling Geese taking off for the skies all at once. Cued by the sunrise it is a cacophony of cackling and flapping wings. It is truly a sight to behold. Gates to the Humboldt Bay WIldlife Refuge open at 6am both Saturday Sunday for this event. Wear a good jacket, it will be cold.
