Quoting "Ian A. Worley" <[log in to unmask]>:
> Today (Nov, 1) I flew over the pond viewable from the Dead Creek WMA
> viewing station in order to photograph the flock of Snow Geese
That's cheating, Ian. :)
> (plus a
> couple of Ross's Geese and a Greater White-fronted Goose). One of the
> photos is posted on the Vermont eBird Pool.
> I hand-counted the number of birds in the photo and came up with a
> total of 4641 birds. The most common estimate of the flock made by
> several viewers on the ground this past weekend was 5000. Ron Payne,
> with a posting of 4500, was closest to 4641.
