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 (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.
