I just got in from my run and heard several flocks flying over Mount Scott
in SE Portland. I don't get them here very often.

Subject: [obol] Eugene Greater White-fronted Geese (big flyover)

This evening at about 6:20 I happened to step outside and heard Greater
White-fronted Geese high overhead. Over the next 15 minutes I observed skein
upon skein upon skein pass over going from roughly NE to SW. I estimate the
total to be in excess of 7000 birds. This could be a gross underestimate
because the birds I observed were flying just below the cloud deck, and it
sounded as though significant numbers were flying in or above the clouds. I
also have no way of knowing how many may have passed over before I stepped
outside. I heard still more 45 minutes to an hour later which were not
visible and apparently above the clouds.

We are located in the Santa Clara area of Eugene.
