  1. I do not know where Bee Branch is, but what an awesome amount of birds!! Did these all stay behind in migration??? I am sure the weather has fooled them to a certain extent this year. We drove by a golf course a couple days ago and it was flooded by canadian geese all over, pond and otherwise. I cannot imagine what they are going to do if they stay around. Tourists do not like to play golf in goose poop!! We live in Sun City Az in the winter and it is to be 73 or so today…so they found the right weather here.


    • Hi Holly The Bee Branch Creek Restoration involved replacing almost one-mile of storm sewer with a creek and floodplain that resembles the one that traversed the area approximately 100 years ago. This “daylighting” of the buried Bee Branch Creek allows stormwater from flash floods to safely move through the area without flooding adjacent properties. It is a beautiful addition to the community and a great recreational area.

      There is generally a large population of geese that remain in Dubuque but I have never seen so many in one place at one time. 🙂

      Thank you for following my blog. Wishing you the very best.
