Late post again, but in addition to the Snowy Owl 2 days ago at Wire there were Horned Larks there as well, and on adjacent Blue Hill Rd there were multiple small flocks of Horned Larks and a solitary American Pipit.

I heard them too when putting up the lights this evening but thought they were Canada geese.

I thought I saw some earlier today, I noticed a flock but they were too high and a bit too far to be sure on the ID. Now I'm sure it was since I'm also in Colonie! I'll be listening carefully when I take the dogs out.

As an aside, I have 2 Great Horned owls in the back woods. They've been hanging out atop the tree that is just at the fence line. Love seeing and hearing them.









Since 7:15p.m. tonight I’ve heard at least three groups of
Snow Geese migrating overhead here in Colonie. Anyone else
with a similar observation?

Just overheard a group flying over my apartment in downtown albany, too.  Thanks for the tip!

I thought I saw some earlier today, I noticed a flock but they were too high and a bit too far to be sure on the ID. Now I'm sure it was since I'm also in Colonie! I'll be listening carefully when I take the dogs out.

As an aside, I have 2 Great Horned owls in the back woods. They've been hanging out atop the tree that is just at the fence line. Love seeing and hearing them.











Since 7:15p.m. tonight I’ve heard at least three groups of
Snow Geese migrating overhead here in Colonie. Anyone else
with a similar observation?

Snow geese now 8:45pm

Jeff Nadler
 

Yes, outside with my dog now. Large movement of snow geese with "bark" like sound overhead at 8:45pm


Jeff Nadler


Snow Geese

Sorry if this is a double post, Yahoo is not playing nice right now.

Anyway, I saw a flock of what I thought was Snow geese earlier today. They were very high and far off so I couldn't make a positive ID but now think they were.

I'll be listening when I take the dogs out later.


Re: Snow Geese movement- 12/11

Eric Molho
 

Just walked my dog and heard non Canada geese moving and calling in the dark.  You could talk me into snow.
