On Thursday, March 6, Linda (my wife) and I visited Squaw Creek National Wildlife Reserve. A good deal of the water remain frozen; however, the Muskrats emerge from winter relaxation, and masses of Snow Geese cover the area.
To enlarge a photograph, simply click on the image.
The White Pelicans and Yellow-headed Blackbirds I hope to photograph this spring will probably arrive in a couple weeks.
I will visit and add to the slide show, which includes a number of other birds, including Trumpeter Swans (in the distance), Coots, a Bald Eagle, Canada Geese, and the Red-wing Blackbird filled trees depicted in the following picture:
Though jumpy in places (I will bring a tripod next time), this brief video will give you a good idea of the huge numbers of Snow Geese presently that presently visit the area, filling the Squaw Creek air with impressive goose music.
I look forward to my next visit and will add more photographs to the slide show linked previously and perhaps refine the video.
