I actually saw something similar on my street a couple years ago, not quite as many, it was funny and cool at the same time.

Reminds me of my early years workin' on a duck ranch. I tell ya', there's no sound more terrifying than the thunder of thousands of webbed feet during a duck stampede.....

That was funny. We had just as many geese in the apartment complex I used to live in, but they were not as fast and they did not yield to traffic! Fortunately, *most* cars yielded to them, and their goslings in tow.

Other than the by products of the operation, there is nothing like a flock of guard geese.
There are several examples here in SoCal including a truck yard.
They go from dead quiet to full ruckus in 0.9 nanoseconds.
BTW, you never want to get bitten by a goose.
If you do, you will remember it for a while.
SFWIW, cat vs. goose is no contest.
Kept my boat at a boat yard on a river a few years ago.
There was a boat yard cat who had a disposition much like a junk yard dog.
One year a wild mama goose went to set along the river bank.
Soon a flock of goslings hatched, getting the cat's attention.
Cat made a few attempts to investigate, but was rebuffed by mama goose.
Finally one day the cat got too close, and mama goose got a hold of that cat.
To put in bluntly, that cat never recovered.

Except for a flock of peafowl (peacocks / peahens).

Just getting banged by the wings is a substantial deterrent. DAMHIKT.
Geese are much more aggressive than peafowl, but peafowl are a more effective early warning system. ONE peacock's 'scream' (they call it that for a reason) is more than enough to freeze anybody in their tracks.

You're gonna get the bill for that one. Even if you were just winging it.

Since they're geese, not ducks, it's actually "stuff that honks you off."

People just get into a flap over this. Geese are good runners. You can see pictures of their feet all over the web.

Q. Why do geese have flat feet? A. To stamp out forest fires.

Notice how the biguns are evenly spaced throughout the flock. Looks like a school outing. Lot of them around here. Geese, that is.

You want to see geese as in Canada Geese? Take a trip down to Toronto Island. Damned birds are protected and you can't go two feet without stepping in Goose shit. If you do go and perhaps have a beer at the Toronto Island Restaurant, make sure you're sitting under an overhang or a patio table with an umbrella. Else you get inundated with pigeon droppings. Safe to say, I don't visit the island anymore.
They have the right idea across the lake in the US. Canada geese are killed and cooked up for the homeless.

What I noticed is that they're all trotting, except the little guy ~3rd from last.
He's GALOPING, bless his heart.
