Snow Geese @ Freezeout Lake

Captured 2015-03-29 

With the mild winter across much of the western United States the Snow Geese did not arrive in the larger numbers that I have seen in past years. I talked with a wildlife biologist who said that there were only 16,000 to 22,000 on any given day. The fact that the weather was not as harsh probably meant they did not need as much rest so they moved in and out of the area fairly quickly. As always this is a viewing experience not to be missed.
