    There was an artical in the newsminer that the geese made it to Clearwater Lake this morning ( counted about 20 )

    A few days early, and cramers field's in Fairbank's is'nt ready for them.

    A little volenteer work might be needed.

    Default spring is a comin --seein migrators

    have seen a lot of migrators out on the flats--tundra swans, geese and lots of ducks. the skunk cabbage is about 3 inches out of the ground and the croacuses are in full bloom in my front yard. Thrushes are definitely announcing the spring migration. Wish I was in yakutat or somewhere along the coast to witness this amazing northern migration. the local mallards are paired up. just 5 and a half months to go!!

    I guess someone spotted geese at Creamer's Field on Friday. I went by there a few times (and all weekend) and didn't see a thing. I did see 5 swans in an open spot on the Chena this morning (Monday).

    I think the bird's put the brake's on with this weather that moved in.

    This is a conversation between the geese that hit the snow, play along.

    Thinking to themselfs the conversation's that they had around the grain piles at creamers field. ( " George"- Guy's what were we thinking? -"Jim" -"Well it started with Ralph, you are the one that said we had clear sailing" -"Ralph"- hey I was just going by what was on the weather channel"- "Martha"-

    You guy's can fill in the rest.

    Martha- "you guy's have been sitting around the grain to long, how long do we have to sit here?"

    Lisa- "Come on Martha they are to far gone to talk to them right now and we need to find a place out of this white stuff. It will only be a couple of day's before we can be on our way.

    Martha-" I guess your right, I don't want to fly with someone who has had too much grain."

    Jim- " would you lady's quit quaking up a storm over there. We're trying to "hic-up" figure what is the best route.

    Thumbs up Geese on the Clear Water Lake

    I was on the Clear Water last Saturday. River was low and the mouth of the creek between the river and the lake was plugged with ice. No problem to the Go Devil. Sat on the lake and had a great time watching the geese return to the lake from their morning feed. Not lots of birds but maybe a few thousnad honkers, could here some speck's but never did see them in the flock. Some swans and mallard drakes. All in all a nice day. Would have been better if not overcasted. Duck Don
