2014 Bird List- November & Early December

The snow geese are coming in droves, which all the locals take to mean that cold weather has arrived and is here to stay. We’ve been keeping our eye on the BirdCast this fall, and it looks like November was a very good month for birding and hunting here on Delmarva.
