I’m getting my ducks in a row and my Blue Rhapsody quilt is coming together!
I’m also sewing some flying geese for my Mystery Quilt Along project.
In other bird related news: Canadian geese and Mallard ducks 🦆 are easy to spot through out my Pennsylvania area (I think some stay year round!) Along the walking path on the Susquehanna river in Harrisburg city, they are virtually tame and will just waddle out of your path, ignore you or maybe a feisty male will give you a honk! Oh, I just love them!
But for only a few weeks, Snow Geese stop at one specific spot in PA. We are fortunate to live close to the Middle Creek Wildlife Area that hosts this resting stop on the Snow Goose’s migration northbound. As of the last count on 2/15/18 the Migration Updates are:
- Snow Geese: 100,000
- Canada geese: 7,500
- Tundra swans: 3,000-4,000 (We saw a group of them, too far away for me to get a good photo)
It’s hard for me to believe these numbers are true! Watching them fly and roost together is breathtaking and memorizing. Click here for a short video I recorded on my phone to share with you.
We were also honored to spot, through binoculars, a pair of Bald Eagles! 🦅 🦅 We think they will stay, because one was in the nest while the other watched from a nearby tree top. I hoping my blogging friend Chela sees one/some on her Eagle quest too!
