I saw several very large flocks of Snow Geese on CR 4 between Geneva and Canadaigua today. This afternoon a flock of at least 150 thousand was on the corner of Gates Rd and CR 4. As a biologist who studies passerine migration, I find Snow Geese migration to be an awe inspiring spectacle. Simply amazing. I can’t imagine what these flocks look like as they converge onto their breeding grounds.
