NEAR SUMNER, Wash. -- Drivers passing a farm field near Sumner are being distracted by a massive flock of geese.

Neighbors said the geese are feasting on a freshly cut corn field with some tasty ears and stalks left behind.

They fly into the north Pierce County farm in the morning and begin a daily cycle of flying off, circling around and then coming back in for a landing.

There are a few swans and ducks mixed in, but it is primarily Canada geese.

They're hard to notice while grazing, but when the occasional raptor passes overhead or something else disturbs them, the sky turns black with geese.
