Snow Geese At Middle Creek
Molly has been wanting to use her camera and I remembered hearing about the snow geese at Middle Creek on the news the night before, so I asked her if she wanted to go check it out. There just happened to be a new cache on the way, so we got an FTF on the way.
The game commission estimates 180,000 of them have been there. I’ve never seen so many birds on one place. They were not as loud as I expected. I was surprised, but it was neat hearing them all.
It was interesting to see them take off and go into formation. It seemed like thousands flew at once, but it didn’t seem to make a difference to the way the lake looked. It was still covered with birds.
I had read about it before when I first moved here when looking for things for us to do, but we never got over there.
I’m glad we got over there. Even though we didn’t go over there for geocaching, we probably would have never gone if we didn’t cache because we’ve been there before for caching and knew how to get there. I’m disappointed that Molly didn’t take the pictures off her camera yet, so I can’t post any.
