- Mike, perhaps it was the wind effect? At about 1 pm I was also very disappointed at the decreased numbers, then I found a HUGE flock E in a field with some recently fed cattle. By 3 PM they seem to have moved back to water...about half on E side of road and on Priest Lake and half back on Freeze Out. And LOTS of swans on Priest Lake.
I hope the peak has not passed. I am going back to SW Montana tonight and will come back next week if the numbers still are up.
Thanks so much for keeping the list informed.
