I’ve heard many call watching the snow geese rising off the lake together in unison a bucket list moment. I’ve been pretty lucky because I’ve watched these geese rise together as one several times at the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in Stevens, PA. It’s been so worth the trek the last two years in a row — so much so, I’m already thinking about next year’s visit.
For a few days, typically in early to mid-March hundreds of thousands of snow geese stop at Middle Creek on their trek north. This year there was in excess of over 110,000 snow geese that come to Middle Creek to roost and feed at the local fields.
When the snow geese take flight and rise in masse they appear like a big white cloud rising off the water. They move a bit, circle a bit and settle right back. It’s quite a spectacular show.
