[cayugabirds-l] Goose flight

2014-03-14 Thread Christopher Wood
I have seen several flocks of Snow Geese and a few Canadas heading north
this morning -- I only scanned for about 5 minutes. I'm sure someone more
enterprising would do quite well today.

Also several flocks of grackles.

I had a flock of Canada Geese on Dryden Lake this morning, sitting on a bare 
patch of black ice that looked very much like open water.  In with them were 10 
Blue Snow Geese and a single CACKLING GOOSE.  I don't often see that many Blue 
Geese without any white Snows.

While I was there 3 Redheads flew in, circled, and made a low pass by the patch 
before heading back up into the sky.  Apparently they thought it looked like 
open water too.

I've seen perhaps 2,000 Snow Geese pass over West Danby in the last 5 minutes 
in pure flocks. More still coming...

West Danby had a 20 minute lull, then another big pulse of several thousand 
Snow Geese. Now it's quiet again
