Subject: [MOB-Montana] Freezout Thursday Afternoon
Just home in Choteau after a trip to Great Falls with a quick drive through
Freezout. Pond 5 was still the spot too look. Still lots of Canada Geese
but only about half of what I saw on Tuesday. (maybe the rest were out
feeding)???

What was most interesting were 1+2+3=6 swans. I think Tundras. That is a
week early than the usual first "spring" swans.

Subject: [MOB-Montana] Freezout Tuesday Afternoon
I visited Freezout Lake midafternoon. Most everything is still iced. The
exception is Pond 5 with two large open water holes. This open water has
attracted Canada Geese. Somewhere around 2,500 Canadas! Perhaps more on
the Area than I ever seen there before.

No white birds and no ducks seen.yet.

Mike,

Have not been back out to Freezout through the week.

Son Brian has been driving by…mostly frozen with the open water on Pond 5 and the Canada Geese (500-1500) are still present and going out and back to feed.

Hi Mike

Was thinking about going to Freezout tomorrow.  Do you know if it's frozen over? Thanks for any info.

Let’s try the MOB again.

Visited Freezout this afternoon.

The “mud road” (county road west of Pond 4 is terribly rutted…precipitation would make it impassable.

On the west side of the main lake there was a beautiful all white jack rabbit.

The Area had no snow and nearly totally iced over..

Pond 5 had birds.  A batch of open water in both the east and west parts.  This attracted Canada Geese.  About 1,000 on the east side and 500 on the west side.  Also a small batch ~15  of Common Goldeneye.

Mike,

Have not been back out to Freezout through the week.

Son Brian has been driving by…mostly frozen with the open water on Pond 5 and the Canada Geese (500-1500) are still present and going out and back to feed.

Mike S.

Hi Mike

Was thinking about going to Freezout tomorrow. Do you know if it's frozen over? Thanks for any info.

The Area had no snow and nearly totally iced over..

Pond 5 had birds. A batch of open water in both the east and west parts. This attracted Canada Geese. About 1,000 on the east side and 500 on the west side. Also a small batch ~15 of Common Goldeneye.

Let’s try the MOB again.

Visited Freezout this afternoon.

The “mud road” (county road west of Pond 4 is terribly rutted…precipitation would make it impassable.

On the west side of the main lake there was a beautiful all white jack rabbit.

The Area had no snow and nearly totally iced over..

Pond 5 had birds.  A batch of open water in both the east and west parts.  This attracted Canada Geese.  About 1,000 on the east side and 500 on the west side.  Also a small batch ~15  of Common Goldeneye.

Let’s try the MOB again.

Visited Freezout this afternoon.

The “mud road” (county road west of Pond 4 is terribly rutted…precipitation would make it impassable.

On the west side of the main lake there was a beautiful all white jack rabbit.

The Area had no snow and nearly totally iced over..

Pond 5 had birds.  A batch of open water in both the east and west parts.  This attracted Canada Geese.  About 1,000 on the east side and 500 on the west side.  Also a small batch ~15  of Common Goldeneye.

Hello Sneed,
I must confess my apologies for not getting back to you in December of 2018, concerning our mutual friend from Guayaqull, Paul Abad.  He is well and still doing lots of bird guiding and fly fishing guiding, on a 20 day on and 20 day off schedule.  As he is still working as a Naturalist Guide on an Ecuadorian Tourist Boat our of the Galapagos.  And he has higher regards for you and your son, Brandon.  
Good birding, 
BOB

Let’s try the MOB again.

Visited Freezout this afternoon.

The “mud road” (county road west of Pond 4 is terribly rutted…precipitation would make it impassable.

On the west side of the main lake there was a beautiful all white jack rabbit.

The Area had no snow and nearly totally iced over..

Pond 5 had birds.  A batch of open water in both the east and west parts.  This attracted Canada Geese.  About 1,000 on the east side and 500 on the west side.  Also a small batch ~15  of Common Goldeneye.

Let’s try the MOB again.

Visited Freezout this afternoon.

The “mud road” (county road west of Pond 4 is terribly rutted…precipitation would make it impassable.

On the west side of the main lake there was a beautiful all white jack rabbit.

The Area had no snow and nearly totally iced over..

Pond 5 had birds.  A batch of open water in both the east and west parts.  This attracted Canada Geese.  About 1,000 on the east side and 500 on the west side.  Also a small batch ~15  of Common Goldeneye.

The "mud road" (county road west of Pond 4 is terribly rutted.precipitation
would make it impassable.

On the west side of the main lake there was a beautiful all white jack
