"Specks" in the Moonlight
- Mon, 1 Oct 2001 -- Last night I went out about 10:30 to listen to some W.
Screech Owls in the yard and heard in addition the high-pitched, double
yelping of WHITE-FRONTED GEESE winging south in the moonlight. This morning
on my exercise run I saw flocks in the air at various locations around
Potter Valley, at least 120. Jim Armstrong tells me that 73 went down on
the pond on Burris Lane. -- George Chaniot
