This morning I’m heading up for a great field trip. Heading just north of Amish country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, my destination is Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area.
Middle Creek is renowned for the thousands of snow geese that migrate via the Atlantic Flyway and stay for several weeks refueling. Waiting for a strong stiff wind from the south to boost their final leg to the north, these snow geese fill the lake waters and skies.
The last count from February 28, 2013 were 50,000 snow geese along with Tundra Swans, a variety of ducks and all sorts of other little birdy goodies. This will truly be an experience of a life time. The 500mm is packed as well as lots of thermal wear as the temperatures and winds are brisk.
Hope you have a great Sunday and tune in tomorrow for an visit to Middle Creek with me. Bella
This tree was captured along the entrance walkway at Longwood Gardens, and intrigued me with its unique structure. Appearing to be quite old, this tree greets all visitors to Longwood.
