Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in northern Lancaster County is a well-known stop for Snow Geese and Tundra Swans as they migrate back north. Each year tens of thousands of the white birds will stop at the lake and adjoining fields on their annual trek to their summer home. This spring we stopped twice to see the birds but, possibly because of the warmer winter, there were far fewer birds than we’ve seen in other years. The last trip there we saw a few hundred Snow Geese in a distant field but none on the water. However there was a heron that spent time posing for me.
