RE: [Mendobirds] white fronted geese
- Both Aleutians and White-fronted are going by now. I've seen flocks of each
species during the past week. This is actually pretty normal for this time
of year. But still fun to see!

This was submitted yesterday, not today. I'm now wondering if
perhaps this south flying flock wasn't reported as Aleutians
sighted over Glass beach yesterday. The time ( after 2 pm) coincides.
