Well geez I shoulda stuck with you Taj. Glad you got that Hudsonian Godwit
eventually! Bet you got great photos too 😀
I got about 2500 Snow Geese (that estimate is made prior to counting using
my photos) at sundown. And a pair of Northern Harriers + about 30 American
Pipits on Gage Rd.
Cheers & enjoy those birds!
