This afternoon as we were driving north on Bayview-Edison Road, we spotted a large (hundreds) flock of geese flying southward, very high. Probably Snow Geese, from the formation (or rather thestreaming, fluid lack of formation), but too high to tell. First big migration we've seen this fall.
In other news (sad), an Anacortes friend sent photos of a Varied Thrush killed in a windowstrike. Sad-- and early for a VATH arrival. I hope it's a sign that we'll have here them again this winter, because we had /none/ last winter.
