Snow and Snow Geese

The forecasted snow storm duly arrived, starting with a few light flurries at 3:00 yesterday afternoon.  Then a wet snow/rain mixture...

The wind picked up and

My back yard this morning - wet, heavy, clinging snow.

And as I was throwing out some peanuts to a forlorn looking squirrel, a flock of Snow Geese circled low overhead.  Really low.  They've just arrived, as I didn't see any around during yesterday prowl around my birding route.  Snow Geese don't like snow.  They will be very unhappy to be caught in this mess.  I hope they can find some place to feed a bit today.
