White-fronted Geese migrating

This evening many observers, both east and west of the Oregon Cascades, are reporting White-fronted Geese moving southward. In the last hour before sunset, from a location near the Willamette River here in Yamhill Co., I counted approximately 1,300 in about 10 flocks, all flying very high and heading southeast. The book says their nesting ground is in Alaska, and they winter in the central valley of California and in western Mexico.
