Another successful Snow Goose Chase event over this year. Some believed the long winter, cold spring and late snow fall would present a challenge in finding the Snow Geese. Warm weather prevailed, and the Snow Geese arrived on schedule! Though limited numbers of other species were seen over the weekend, the participants were thrilled at great flocks of Snow Geese seen in the area, and the displays at the Community Hall!
Here are a just a few images from the weekend's activity:
NOTE: After many years of drought conditions, Beaverhill Lake has dried. However, a springs run-off, coupled with the abundance of moisture this past summer, may give hope that the Lake may begin to fill again. This process may span several years, but the belief is that Beaverhill Lake will regain its glory for waterfowl and migration.
