I was a bit north of you enjoying the many Tundra / Trumpeter Swans along Lower Lake Road and north of Cayuga Lake State Park.. That WAS an impressive raft of Snows!

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.
