...a day makes! Yesterday (Sunday) I too went up the lake and thru Montezuma's Wildlife Drive and Tschache Pool areas, areas Laura Stenzler described Saturday. I saw no Canvasbacks in the main pool, although maybe I missed a few way across, and not too many waterfowl anywhere, and Tschache pool was no longer "wall to wall" ducks! I guess they all moved on north?
Still, it was wonderful seeing the many bird species I did see and I ended at East Rd./Knox Marcellus for a quick look before I had to head home at 3 PM. One swan and 2-3 real Snow Geese at K-M. I say "real Snow Geese" because across from the Potatoes building on Rt. 31 I saw a lot of "Tyvek" Snow Geese decoys arrayed in a field and later saw a similar array of the puffy, blowing-around fake geese off the Rt. 326 shortcut from Rt. 90 to Rt. 34B. I don't know if the special goose hunting season is still on or not. This morning as I filled bird feeders here on Lansing Station Rd by Cay. L., I heard 2 Common Loons calling loudly and seemingly-joyously to each other! Donna L.
