snow goose migration update
This information is current as of noon, Tuesday, April 23, 2013.
Not too much has changed in the overall progress of the migration since the last
report. Some flocks of snow geese were seen in fields in southeastern North Dakota
during the weekend. We are still getting reports of good numbers of geese east and south
of Groton and in the Scatterwood Lake area southwest of Aberdeen. Large flocks were
reported in the Redfield area over the weekend, and in the Huron area, along highway 14.
Last evening, large flocks were seen between Ashton and Mellette, in northern Spink
County. As of yesterday and this morning, there are very few snow geese in the
immediate Sand Lake area. Duck numbers have also dropped on the refuge.
