Looking across the bridge in Grings Mill
Every Spring at our local Watershed, the Snow Goose arrives by the thousands. The Watershed is one of their stop-off’s to rest and feed before heading out on their way. They will be here this year any time now. I plan to go see them again when they arrive. It’s a awesome site to see.
Here I took a shot of the Snow Geese all taking to the air at one time. The sound of them “talking” and the sound of all those wings in the air is a sight to behold. This photo was taken at the Middle Creek Wildlife Refuge.

Last year, in January, when we had so much snow, wind, and cold, I thought that I’d brave the cold windy weather and check out a favorite spot to see what it looks like in the grip of Old Man Winter. By the time I walked to this spot, I was about frozen. The temp. was about 17 degrees with a light wind blowing. The water here is not deep. Maybe a foot or so. Usually there are some ducks around, but not this time. Too cold I would imagine. I set up my camera, shot this Image, and walked quickly back to a warm car. When it’s cold, the biggest problem I have is keeping my fingers and feet warm. For some reason, I can’t wear any glove that will keep my hands warm. I have not found any type of glove that works, yet! My feet are not too bad, as long as I have thick socks and boots to wear, which I do have.
Best to you and thanks
Yesterday, while out there walking around, I decided to go check on another area that is just behind the Dam where I was before. Found that not much was going on here. Just the same as it was the last time I was here. The stream is coming from a marsh land that is just off to the left of this photo. It has nice, fresh, clear, cold water and empties into the Dam. Again, I have never seen any deer here. Some ducks and geese, but hardly anything else. Maybe I should come here at a different time of the day. Just behind this Image is a 2 lane back country road that is used a fair amount. The traffic might be what is causing no much wildlife to come around. Out of the picture is a sign that say’s “No Fishing.” Guess not. Never saw any fish in the stream anyway.
