Just west of Alex.

Looks like E.P.P. geese mixed in with the swans, eh Wayne? They usually start flying through "west of Alex" around this time and for the next couple of weeks.

This is the only group of fowl I located this afternoon. I was thinking that there would be more migrators after the high north/northwest winds and snow... but not so much.

Nice shot, I think after yesterday's weather the northerners will be thinking about coming down.

Steve the lens is great. You do need to get a little closer than I had anticipated. And being fat and old is now making that a little more of a challenge. Shooting with a lens is becoming more of a work-out than shooting with a 20ga.

Wayne, just trade it in for Canon's new 800mm f5.6L IS. That'll reach out and touch some waterfowl. Or better yet, shell out $90,000 for Canon's custom made 1200mm f5.6L. Of course you need to buy a jeep with a machine gun mount to use as a tripod for that mother. gringringrin

You could buy a house in our town for that price. Although it is slightly less than a decent used tractor. grin

Steve at your suggestion I tried the Canon custom 1200mm. I had to return it... Even with good duct-tape I could not keep that beast attached to my point & shoot camera.
