Gaggles of Geese
As I was driving into town recently waves of snow geese were flying over Burns. When I got to the library I got out of the car and snapped these photos. What fascinated me was the patterns they made in the sky as they flew high overhead. This weekend the John Scharff Bird Festival is in full swing in Harney County. Birders come from all over to see the birds. Someone said they saw ibis this week. I haven't seen any yet. The hay fields around Burns are flooded now which makes great feeding for water fowl.
