Welcome to Saturday's Critters!
Hello and happy Saturday!
Hubby and I went to see the Snow Geese at the Middle Creek WMA near Stevens Pennsylvania. The visitor center was closed due to Covid but the motor tour was open. The beginning of March the Snow Geese can be seen in huge flocks migrating north. We saw thousands of Snow Geese, lots of Tundra Swans and various ducks. I saw my first of the year Tree Swallows, some Eastern Bluebirds, Red-winged Blackbirds and I could hear Killdeer nearby.

8. A group of Ring-necked ducks in front of the Snow Geese.
Crowds of people from all over come to Middle Creek WMA in Lancaster County Pennsylvania to see these Snow Geese. Early March is the best time to see the migration of the spring waterfowl.
