They were surely Snow Geese - and what  lovely sight they are.  They usually 
fly so high you can barely see them and when they start to land the black 
wing tips twinkle so that they look like confetti.  200 seems a small flock - 
every fall we go to Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge in Delaware to see them.  The 
flock there is said to be 60,000 or more.  There is usually another flock at 
the Assateague Wildlife Refuge in Virginia, but only 15 or 20 thousand 
strong.  I think a flock of Snow Geese is one of the most exciting things I 
have ever seen.  Auralie
