The Spectacle of Snow Geese Migration Not too Far From Philly
I never really noticed or heard about the Snow geese who pass through Pennsylvania during their spring and fall migrations to and from the arctic breeding grounds until I started getting serious about bird watching last year. Now I follow a lot of birders, and photographers like 6ABC’s Bruce Neumann who pique my interest in so many subjects. Bruce photographed spots in and around Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in Lancaster so I headed out there with Marilyn Russell on Sunday, and we had a lot of company.
The Snow Geese migration continues into the begining of March, so if you have a chance take a drive out to Middle Creed Wildlife Management Area there’s plenty of parking, and the ride from the turnpike to the pike is quite beautiful.
We lived in Reading, back in the early 70s. The number of various birds in the area was spectacular, at least to this city girl who was used to pigeons, crows and sparrows! Al used to take us for drives all around the deep back roads. How well I remember that road that dips and rises! It was a main road at the time. Nice photos. Brought back some pleasant memories.
