A good day for watching migrating Canada Geese, done while painting our 
house on the southern end of Snake Mountain.  Observed and counted 21 
skeins through the day, for a total count of 1505 (sometimes adding 
separate counts comes up with funny numbers).  The largest group I 
estimated at 300; the smallest was14.  All were moving steadily 
northward at altitude.  Unable to discern any other tag-along geese species.
