Camas NWR and Market Lake- April 2019

Saturday April 6th

I thought I would take a day and explore my nearby Northern hotspots. In particular I was hoping it was not to late to see Snow geese.

The migration of waterfowl was in full flight. There were hundreds and hundreds of ducks of all kinds.

I did get to see Snow geese flying overhead and making a lot of noise.
