Greg and I spent 4.75 hours driving 68 miles in Fulton County on a WRS route. Part of the route was originally one of Dan Snell's CREP routes.
We had two great sightings. As I was driving, I saw a distant bird soaring. We stopped and Greg got the scope on it. It was a Golden Eagle, an uncommon bird. Then later we saw a gaggle of Canada Geese by a creek and a fox trotting close to them. A closer look at the approximately 150 geese revealed a Snow Goose!
Scott Weidensaul reported FOY Red-winged Blackbirds in Schuylkill county. Fulton county is much further south and we did have 1 at one site and 10 at another. We haven't seen any in Huntingdon county yet.
