Sighting

Today Bob and I saw around 200 Snow Geese with a possible Ross's, mostly on Road 6, 50 or so Mountain Bluebirds (no discernable Westerns) hanging out with pipits, and 21 Bonaparte's Gulls gracefully flying and daintly picking food off the surface of the pond near the intersection of the Mainline Road and Sulfate Road. (T&J: what is the high number?) Certain roads had foam blowing across like snowdrifts. The wind was not unpleasant and the sky was beautiful today.
