Re: absent Hummingbirds this year

Actually, from what I have read, there are two flyways for the snow goose. Most of the white ones go south along the east coast (as you have noted). The other flyway (used by most of the "blue" ones) is through the plains states. My goose may have been lost, as the route they use is further west, but it did not seem injured, from my observation.

You only had one snow goose? It must have been lost or injured. In a
couple of weeks we will be heading to Bombay Hook and Chincoteague for our annual
"snow goose fix" and I can hardly wait. The sight of literally thousands of
those beautiful birds lifting up from the water, or coming down in flocks, is
the most exciting natural event I have ever witnessed. Just absolutely amazing!
But they would not make a nice back-yard visit. A small flock of Canadas
makes such a mess - imagine thousands at one time. Auralie
