Watch and see if they show up in more days to come and go set up! Get a few dozen snow geese dekes and light those suckers up! Cool pics!

Hunter, they've feasted in that cornfield plenty of times in the last few months. That just so happens to be a really good dove spot some years. Doesn't look like any of my local boys desire to dig a big enough pit to bury the carcasses!!

I was raised in the northern Sacramento Valley when those suckers would darken the sky. I will never forget the noise tens of thousands of them make.

On Canandaigua Lake in NY, we would see one or two of these a year. Now in the last two winters there have been thousands of them coming through.

I banded ducks on this lake for many, many years, and am beginning to think the flyway is changing. I don't have any other explaination for it...

Quite a sight to see....

I lived there for 10years, 56 to 66. Don't remember even seeing a goose let alone 1000's. When did Eastern PA become the goose hunting capital? I lived on the East side of Beth (Butztown) kept an airplane at TRIGS, ever hear of either?

Just forget about them there birds and go buy a copy of and then watch
"The Birds" by Alfred Hitchcock starring Tippi Hedrin.

Here is a quote from the review of this movie: "The Birds asks; what would happen if nature were to suddenly decide that humans were an intolerable nuisance? I think they would win."

ntgr8, you have to give directions in this area by bar locations. Yes, I've had a few at the Butztown Hotel!!
