Snow gees migration

Marty’s photo of the day #2128: I’m posting late today, as Deb and I got up at 4:00 a.m. to make the 200 mile drive to Freezout Lake in northern Montana. Freezeout Lake is a major migration stop for swans and snow geese, as they work their way north. Freezeout Lake had been on our list for years, and when we heard that 3,000 swans and 20,000 snow geese were at the lake, we raced up there. Because the lake (actually several bodies of water) was bigger than I expected, the birds weren’t as packed in as I had imagined. So it was a fun day, but not exactly a National Geographic-type experience.
