They didn’t exactly cooperate. I had hoped for an in flight low over the marshes. They were bed down much further in the marshlands so that was out.
Considering they came from the arctic circle to sub-tropical ACE Basin seeing them at all is amazing.
Not many come this far south, it’s only by chance they come at all. They winter about 500 miles north, and that’s the southern end of their range.
Each year this small group (and a few others) come to the Bear Island wildlife area. We think it’s cold now…they love it.
