Middle Creek Dawn
A mixture of Canada Geese, Tundra Swans, and assorted ducks rest on the lake while skiens of Snow Geese pass overhead.
While the sun was still hidden behind the eastern hills the Snow Geese rose from the lake in unison.
Willard and I visited Middle Creek Friday, 3-2-12. The PGC estimate placed the snow goose count at 65,000 - 70,000 birds and cautions that the birds may be moving on at any time. If you wish to view this amazing annual spectacle you should do so as soon as possible and check the latest reports or call ahead if you have far to travel.
The synchronized flight of thousands of geese is an amazing sight to behold.
