Six of us went to the Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison to search for snow geese. We were very lucky! A large flock came in just as we were getting out of our cars, stayed long enough for us to ogle and take pictures, and then left. (Other people who came later in the day reported that they didn’t see any geese.) After enjoying the annual spectacle of the migrating snow geese, we took a walk by marshes and farm fields and then had a picnic on the grass. Great birds, a lovely day, and fascinating conversation!

(Editors note: Dead Creek WMA is also hosts Snow and Canada geese which number as high as 20,000 during fall migration and several state and federally threatened and endangered avian species. Some of these include Bald Eagle, Osprey, Sedge Wren, and Black Tern.)
