Andy Martin and I found the flock yesterday afternoon. They were in perhaps the same field of corn stubble close to Hopewell Road across from a farm house and bordered by orchards. We got great looks and sat for a long time enjoying them. If we had not been looking for them, we never would have seen them! We also came across 6 Common Mergansers on the Shenandoah river near the bridge at Swift Shoals Road and Rt. 50. They were swimming amidst big chunks of floating ice and snow. We saw several Northern Harriers in our travels but no Short-eared Owls.
