Around noon today we saw from Union Springs a large continuum of skeins across the lake land towards the opposite shore - we think - which according to google maps would be offshore from Canoga where there is no public access. When we drove back south around 2:30, we saw a few "small" islands of snow geese not too far offshore, between Dean's Cove and Thirsty Owl; we were in a hurry then so did not stop to investigate further.
Other highlights of our trip including the most cooperative snow bunting ever on Davis road, perched on a bush right by the road where we pulled over and staying out for fantastic naked eye looks by everyone before we got out of the van. We saw a few more small flocks of snow buntings and horned larks throughout the day, including on the west side of the lake coming down. A pair of merlins were at Frontenac park in Union springs as well. Good variety of waterfowl at factory street pond as well as at the MNWR visitor center where four sandhill were a big hit, especially when they started dancing.
