Snow Goose feeding / lookout strategy

Mention has been made about the waryness or was it awareness of the Snow Geese at KNNR this week.
A feature of this is their sharing of eating / drinking so that some are aware and some are engaged in feeding
or drinking and then they swap over role as a sub - group.  In this way the sentry's can alert those otherwise engaged.
These shots were taken in early Nov. in Manitoba, Canada - and these are truly wild geese - however they showed no interest in me at a distance of about 30 yards - so maybe they are not that wary after all?

as we discussed Richard, the Kenfig birds engaged in the same feeding strategy while we watched them.
