Snow Geese Migration


 Middle Creek WMA is home to thousands of Snow Geese in the month of February when the birds are about mid-way in their migration north. In addition to the geese, there are Tundra Swans and lots of other cool waterfowl that are migrating. 
 A Northern Shoveler! One for the life list. :)


 Tundra Swans & Canadian Geese



 To watch thousands of geese take off at once is a really cool sight. They circle around before landing again on the lake or they took off to head to the arctic.

 Middle Creek WMA is a great place in Pennsylvania for birdwatching & hiking at any point in the year, I'm sure we'll be back before next February. :)
