    While at a field trial in Hinckley this morning, about 50-60 mixed snows and blues came right over well in shooting range. Last week, saw several snows and blues mixed in with a bunch of Canada's in a cut cornfield near LaGrange. Had a guy tell us this morning a field in Fremont hosted several hundred recently. Remember reading that as they destroy their local nesting area along Southern James Bay, they are transitioning further to the east in search of suitable nesting cover, and then at migration time, their southerly routes have moved more in the direction of the Great Lakes region. With more and more being seen and reported, kinda sorta makes sense.

    Actually the bulk of the snow migration has shifted farther west than east. Manitoba doesn't see anywhere near the numbers they used to 10-15 years ago. But still seems like there are more and more stragglers out this way.

    I was on the turnpike yesterday and watched about 150 snows take off out of a field and fly right over me. Most snows I've seen at one time in Ohio

    there's a flock of 40-50 snows hitting a field between my house and work. I first saw them last week and they're hanging around.
