    Default It's begun...

    The green tundra grasses are giving way to gold and the first first skeins of geese have begun winging their way southward.

    Saw small groups of whitefronts leaving the slope this morning. There's still thousands that are a week or two away from being ready but about half of the geese broods are fully feathered and exercising. The ducks have started rafting up on the lakes--scads of pintails, good numbers of teal and scaup, some mallards.

    Git'cher dekes painted and lines untangled!

    Soon, boys. Soon.

    The sedges are rusty gold now with just a bit of green right at the waterline. Snow this morning. Just a skiff, and slush in the puddles but it's been 3 of the past 4 mornings, and long skeins of southbound geese every day.

    Just a few Specks left here and there. The ducks are rafted up and feeding furiously but each a day the rafts get a bit smaller. The GWT that was raising her brood under in the pond next to my office has left.

    I think, though, the swans are in trouble.
