Though the lake at Middle Creek is ice-covered, snow geese and tundra swans are here in great numbers.
I say "here" because I'm at Middle Creek this morning. I was considering the 8-hour round trip when Dave Kerr's photos from Friday convinced me it was worthwhile.
Here are my favorites: three tundra swans landing, a string of snow geese ...
... and the glance.
