The ponds are filling with water, but the snow geese have not found it yet. The trumpeter swan and pintails have.
Did not find any snow geese at the refuge, so I headed for Mud Lake. This Red-tailed hawk was hunting in a field where about half of the snow was gone.
About two mile east of Mud Lake I finally found the snow geese. There were not a lot of them, but they were a sight for sore eyes. They were coming in on small waves.
