Watching the movement of snow geese from my office in the Veterinary Research Tower today has been quite interesting. Almost all flocks have made a wide arc northeast (coming from the direction of Mt. Pleasant) of the tower that brings them over Cayuga Heights and then they drop down toward

First of the year for us. Two dropped down onto the still frozen farm pond behind us on South Hill. Expert flying as they dropped almost vertically in the stiff NW wind. Not sure they would want to take off in this wind, in spite of frozen water. Toby -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:

Enormous gathering (~10k if not ~100k) of snow geese in the mucklands of Savannah, SE and SW of the Potatoes building. Not terribly close to the road, but close enough during a big repositioning event to just make you stare in awe. With them are many swans, and a good sized flock of pintails

I decided to check the migration from Mt. Pleasant today between 10:30 and 12:30. Flocks of geese filled the sky in every direction, but not as concentrated as yesterday's mid-day movement. I suspect that I missed much of the movement, especially of Snows as many flocks passed over as I headed

There was obviously a big flight of TUNDRA SWANS last night and today. I saw a total of 15 TUNDRA SWANS migrating today in smaller groups than the geese. In addition, one birder found at least 36 TUNDRA SWANS in one part of Broome County which is unprecedented for down here. On Saturday,
