Middle Creek Blizzard

After two false starts where Middle Creek plans had to be scrubbed, finally Willard and I were able to make the pre-dawn drive east on the Pa Turnpike to the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area today.
 
Snow goose numbers were estimated at 30,000 this morning by PGC personnel which is a considerable drop from Friday's number of 55,000.   While 30,000 is not an impressive number for Middle Creek at this time of year it is an impressive number of birds when you happen to be in just the right position.

Where to land?

I will be posting more from today's shoot in the near future but for now I need to grab some much needed rest.

Wow! I have to wonder how many 'fender benders' happen in a flock that size.
