Which is a very short flight west(10 Kim )of where Craig saw them. Because there are no bridges between Corvallis and Harrisburg, people bird Linn and Benton Counties separately in their cars and in their heads. Similar sized flocks of Greater wfgeese were starting to winter at estuaries between Coos Bay and Astoria 10 years ago. What happened with them?
