[Tweeters] Whither the Snow Geese?

I have been fortunate to be able to make it up to the Skagit/Samish
flats fairly frequently this year. On Feb 12th, there were an astounding
number of Snow Geese up there. I found one large flock and one huge
flock on Fir Island, one medium sized flock near La Conner, and a huge
flock up by Samish Island. A week later on Feb 19th, large skeins were
seen flying over Wylie Slough, but none on the ground between Fir Island
and the West 90. I eventually found a medium sized group south of Stanwood.

My question is, when there are thousands of Snow Geese in the area, but
not in the "usual locations", where do they go? Did anyone find large
numbers in the area on Feb 19? Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks for
any and all information.
