Got ‘em! Thanks. They were so close to West shore this time, that several came ashore & were eating grass on a small lawn south of Wolffy’s. Fun to see them so close by. They (est. 40,000 by Suan Y. ) attracted quite a large # of hairless primate observers, too. & a bit of a traffic jam.

Lots of snow geese on lower Lake Road by the restaurant as described. A bunch were so close that they were walking around on the shore. No telling if they will still be there tomorrow Period Lanie On Sat, Mar 20, 2021 at 7:37 PM Barbara Bauer Sadovnic wrote: > Did the snow geese Alyssa saw

Did the snow geese Alyssa saw from Lower Lake Rd. in the middle of the day today stick around? Are there sand hill cranes anywhere? Planning to wander tomorrow... -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES

Not that it would be unlikely to see osprey now, I saw Turkey Vultures sitting in a nest there earlier today. I thought they were osprey too until I got closer. Maybe there are osprey! But those TUVUs tricked me. -- Alyssa Johnson Environmental Educator 315.365.3588 Montezuma Audubon Center PO

2 very large rafts of snow geese on the Cayuga lake viewed from the state park and lower lake road. VERY conservative estimate is 200k but the heat shimmer and water makes it hard to see. Get Outlook for iOS -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:
