After church we headed out for Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area. We love visiting this place where Canada Geese, Tundra Swans, and Snow Geese rest twice a year on their yearly migrations.
It's a tad early in their spring migration north, so the lake wasn't full of these beautiful creatures, but there were hundreds of people there to see them! We weren't the only ones who decided to get out and enjoy the beautiful day.
Kamryn, Kyle and I rode in the back of the van. My mom was with us today, and Vinnie and Emma met us there.
We like to take the half mile hike down to the Point. You can see the geese flying up off the lake. They do this every so often.
Next month the lake will be full of of the birds.
There were lots of cameras with big, big lenses.
This boy is growing up too quickly.
It was hard to hear the birds over all the voices but you can see the way the birds will just rise up and fly a bit and land in the lake again.
The visitors center is really educational too.
We stopped and got ice cream cones on the way home, and then had a campfire.
It was a beautiful day.
