We saw a single snow goose at the Crane Unit (Van Dyne Spoor Road) for two 
weeks in April, then not again until July 2.  From late April until last week 
we were not surveying around the unit, only from Van Dyne Spoor Road. It is a 
large area and it is certainly possible that we just didn't see it while we 
were there. We saw it again on 7/30 and so far every week in August. A few 
weeks ago someone witnessed a Trumpeter Swan beating the daylights out of a 
snow goose and was able to post pictures. In one, it looked like a goner! The 
next time we surveyed, it was there. Lately it has been near the road. It seems 
to have recovered, probably hanging out near the road to avoid the swans! It is 
pretty safe to say that this is not an early migrant.

 At VanDyne Spoor Rd late yesterday afternoon near end of road. Flew OK about 
300’ from walking in road, out to marsh, as I approached it. 
Has it been there since last spring or is it early coming south?
I have not been at VDS Rd. In ages, so don’t know what’s been there. Pic:
