Mud Lake Snow Geese

Every Spring Snow Geese (and a few Ross’s Geese) stage at Mud Lake and surrounding marshes and fields. I made it out there last night to see the spectacle. I found around 3000 Geese out on the lake. After I was there for a bit all of the geese left the lake, flew directly over my head and landed to feed in a field a few hundred yards to the north of me. It was pretty cool. Pretty soon the geese will head north to the arctic to nest.

  1. I think I saw more than 3000 today. Maybe twice that number? Waves just kept coming in and landing on what little open water was available in the middle of the lake.
