March 16, 2008: Birding at Montezuma NWR and Savannah Mucklands

Today we both had some time in the morning .. so we headed out and birded the Finger Lakes area! We started at the Savannah Mucklands, and saw some incredible Snow Goose flocks! Ended up briefly at Montezuma NWR before heading back home...

This muskrat must have just woken up from hibernation. He was on Route 89 just north of the Thruway
