Well, I don’t have a method for estimating, so I could be very, very wrong!

The snow geese that I also saw today were up along Rt 89 not far from Wolffy's Grill and there must have been closer to 50,000 between those rafting on the lake and those flying overhead! Amazing!!!!!

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 ¼ 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.
