Subject: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese flying
This afternoon, between 4:30 and 5:30 pm, I saw thousands of snow geese flying south, group after group. I estimate 2,000 to 4,000 but it was extremely difficult to count!

This was from Sheffield Road, the Ithaca/Enfield town line and about mile north of Rt. 79.

I also quite a few Vs of Canada geese that were circling or doing a 180, hard to tell, I think they were mostly heading south/south-east. There were far fewer of those than the snow geese.

And I've been hearing red-winged blackbirds but haven't seen them yet.
