Happy Easter everyone!
These days are just flying by, finally Spring officially arrived on March 20th. YAY for Spring! I am sharing a daytrip from March 9th to Middle Creek WMA near Lancaster Pa. My hubby, my brother and I went to see the Snow Geese that are migrating on the East Coast. The Snow Geese stop at the Middle Creek Wildlife Management area for a rest and refuel. I did not count the geese but I would say there were around 50,000 Snow Geese, 1,000 or more Tundra Swans and various others ducks seen on this day.
Some of the Snow Geese were close to the crowds of people, they did not seem shy.
Seeing all these Snow Geese is amazing sight even for the non-birder.
Around the other side of the lake we found the Tundra Swans hanging out with some Canada Geese.
We waited a while to see the Snow Geese lift off the water to land on the fields.
The Snow Geese did not fly far, some actually just walked onto the field from the water.
One barn was in the distance and another barn off the road as I was driving. I like the big tree next to the barn on the bottom right. I hope these barns are ok for Tom's Barn Collective. We had great weather almost a summer like day, I always love seeing the Snow Geese and Swans. We found a nice diner called Knight and Day, for an early dinner before the ride home.
I hope you enjoyed my post. As always, I appreciate the visits and your nice comments. Have a happy new week ahead!
As always thanks to the wonderful group of hosts listed below.
Thanks to Tom for hosting The Barn Collective
