The "Barking" of the Geese

Yesterday, I heard the tell tale sign of "barking" coming from the sky and looked up to see the first large flock of snow geese I have seen fly overhead.

You can check the migration numbers through this site to find out how the migration counts look, but typically the best time to visit Middle Creek is in late winter around early to mid March.
