I went Dead Creek this morning but when I arrived the Snow Geese were not visible. I was glad to see however that the corn along viewing area road was finally being cut. With nothing to see there, I went over to Briliya where I found Green-winged Teal, Mallards, Black Ducks, Gadwall and Northern Pintail, and a Cackling Goose in a flock of Canada Goose headed south. After a while, I started to see flocks of Snow Geese dropping in from high altitude and along with one of these groups I spotted a Ross's Goose. Not long after they landed, it looked like the cutting equipment spooked the entire Snow Goose flock into the air, so I decided to head back to the Goose Viewing area to see if they had moved to a more visible spot. When I arrived I saw that they had gone back to the pond, but some of them had just started to fly up out of it and land on an open field. I took this oppertunity to count them as they came into view, and while doing this I spotted the Ross's Goose again. Afte!
r about an hour when geese had stopped coming out of the pond, I had a total count of 3466 Snow Geese.
