CC I dont think these guys EVER really sleep in the daytime..

The place I retired from had REALLY hi-res, long zoom, stabilized surveillance cameras, and the geese used to cluster around the building I worked in to eat the clover, and rest...

I zoomed in on a gooses head, from time to time and filled a 40 inch monitor with it...

Some of them slept, for sure, but the leader of each particular pack (they roamed in groups of 20 to 40 adults and chicks) would cycle an eye open about once every thirty seconds.. Every 4 to 5 minutes he would raise his head, have a good look around, and resume "resting".

Amazing what you could observe with a 950mm f4 lens from hundreds of feet away (cameras were mounted 60 feet above a 3 story building).
