Middle Creek

Middle Creek Wildlife Management area is known as a spring migration spot for snow geese and tundra swans.  I have been to the area in the past during the non-migration period.  I've been watching the migration pattern for the past few years to try to get myself out there during the peak of the migration.  So planned my trip for the first weekend in March ... which was close to peak for the past few years.  But - this year because of the mild winter, I found myself out there about 2 weeks or so past the peak.  There were no updates in terms of the migration in the week preceding my visit and I almost skipped going as we had a little winter blast of winter the day I was to go, with morning temps around 20 and a cold breeze.   Was glad I decided to go - was a good scouting trip for me and hopefully helps me be better prepared for next years migration!  I can only imagine the spectacle with 10x the birds I saw on this trip.
