IF YOU HAVEN’T YET SEEN THE SNOWS OF AUTUMN, this weekend should be good for getting goosed. In the December warmth, thousands of Snow Geese continue to flock and fly at Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison, Vermont, and at Point Au Roche State Park, south of Rouse’s Point, across Lake Champlain in New York.
As many at 5,000 Snow Geese were reported from Dead Creek during the past week, including the flock feeding close to the goose viewing area on Route 17. In late November, counts at Point Au Roche and environs were as has as 10,000 (on November 30) and 15,000 (on November 26).
