Took the afternoon off hoping to find the snow geese at Mucklands, but en route I found a/the massive snow goose island between Dean's Cove and Aurora, so I parked at Dean's Cove hoping to see and video a full eruption which never came to pass, just a couple of "minor tremors". Starting around 4pm skeins started departing towards the NW or WNW, which is to say, not towards the Mucklands. At this point, the island was stretched pretty long and thin, but still contained an impressive number of birds, echoing a distant cacophony.
Also had six Sandhill Cranes fly over, and a few Common Loons fishing and wailing in the beautiful gentle sun. Suan PS. No pink-footed goose :-). -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
