We had numerous small flocks fly over our house this morning. Probably 20+ flocks of 50-100 birds, coming from the direction of Cayuga Lake and flying southwest. Not sure where they were headed.
This evening about 5:30pm there was an enormous flock of snow geese on the ground in fields east of Co Rd 129 between Wycoff and Munson Rds in Ovid. I would guess 20-30 acres (and perhaps more) just covered with snow geese.

I have seen that same flock of SNOW GEESE on Cayuga lake that Bill reported. Been there all day.
Yesterday I saw 4 blue SNOW GEESE looking for food in field at corner of Lansing Station Rd & Rt 34B, along with large flock (30 or so) of SNOW BUNTINGS with a few HORNED LARKS. First Snow Buntings for me this winter (not for lack of trying to find some!)
I have gone through a whole bag of bird seed this week feeding hundreds of birds at home.

I stopped by Stewart park at noon today - and was surprised to see three Snow Geese drop onto the lawn to join a group of Canadas.
There have been 2000-3000 SNOW GEESE in the air over our place since noon or so today. Generally headed north. Now from our kitchen window we can see a raft of Snows on the lake. They would be about a mile north of Taughannock Falls SP. I am headed out to see if there is a closer view suitable for some pictures.
