I just drove to Iowa City from Marion and by the time I started driving by Hawkeye WMA I started seeing the skies chalked with skeins. From a high vantage point at Finkbine parking lot, there was a unbroken chain of 10's of thousands of geese strung across the Iowa City/Coralville area. I had several low flyovers at the Melrose exit and at Finkbine, observing mixed flocks of Snow/Ross's, a small flyover flock of Canada/Cackling , and other low flying mixed flocks of Snow/Greater White-fronted.
A great day to be out of you can manage it.
Good birding, Brandon Caswell Marion
