    Default They're Back!

    The waterfowl are on the way back. I was just talking to my wife on the phone and she saw 4 trumpeters fly over the house.

    I havnt been in Anchorage this past couple weeks and I'm surprised nobody has reported on here until now. I use to always see geese in anchorage around april 1 when I lived there. I recall april 1 specifically because I use to always see them on or just before april fools day. I suspect they have been in Anchorage a couple weeks now and just not reported on here. Bud

    No geese on the Park Stip ball fields or at the BP lawn. None at Cuddy Family Park near the library either. Lots of corn fed mallards though.

    of course the ducks have been on the river all winter, but I saw a goose for the first time yesterday... haven't driven past Creamer's lately but I assume there are a few puttering around the field over there
    Passing up shots on mergansers since 1992.

    Just saw a huge flock on my way to my friend's house from the airport.
    Looks like it's that time of year again!
