The drive up was nice but birdless. Nevertheless, it was a swell afternoon/evening, especially after I had an ice cream cone at the "Snow Goose" stand on Fir Island and then slipped into the Hayton Reserve and let the goose show begin - it was great - the vocals and the skeins of geese (some Canadas and lots of Snows) rising and falling and mostly heading north - saw no eagles causing the geese to lift. Took a quick look at Wylie Rd. and then headed toward Stanwood, stopping for some ears of fresh corn on the way. Was enveloped in sadness passing the Eide Rd. area. Will any of the Short-eared Owls come by for a look this year? :-(
