Where do they go?

By David Horst

I mourn the loss of habitat every time I see a subdivision sprout where a farm field used to be or a woods come down for a big box store.
That said, I also am amazed at what wildlife can do with the scraps of habitat we’ve left them.
Folk singer Greg Brown wrote a song that asks: “Where do the wild geese go when they go away?” Putting aside that there are so many geese now that they never really go away, the lyric expresses my wonder about where all of this wildlife is when I’m not watching them.
