    Nearby watershed with a spring that won't freeze, thousands of geese hanging out. More geese than the pic shows, but I was driving

    I have family that lives in Oley Valley and Green Lane.

    Scotty, perhaps it was Ontelaunee Lake (up near Fleetwood) or Blue Marsh Lake, near Reading. However, it seems any large body of around hear has Geese....
