Default Snow geese on the move





A couple of multi mile long strings of snows heading north around Norfolk NE this morning. Reports of 10's of thousands out west.

I had a bunch of robins around me in early January during muzzy season.

No snows in central Iowa yet, that Iíve seen.

That number will Grow or shrink depending on where the mass is at. I have heard that eastern Colorado is a hot bed right now. Can pretty much guarantee those birds in Co. will not come back southeast before heading north.

My guess is Squaw will empty out this weekend. The MO G&F are planning a burn on the refuge. This will likely scare a lot of birds out of the area.

well that sucks. I am sure some will stop at Riverton. There isn't too many places remaining along the river they can roost.

Hard to get to excited for snows with a 3 ft drift in front of my shed and 20 inches of ice on the lakes. still ice fishing season for me!
