Barbara and I checked the goose flock at Howard’s around 12:30 p.m. today. We counted 250 White-fronted Geese and 12 Cackling Geese mixed in with the Canadas. Lots (9) of Bald Eagles along the Pecatonica River between Ridott, in Stephenson County, and Howard’s.
The fields along the Pec River have a lot of water in them, but, of course, it is all frozen at the moment. Should be good for dabbling ducks and other migrants when the ice melts.
