My life Ross's Goose. I remember this bird well. When I arrived at the pool where it was reported I found it covered with Snow Geese and said to myself "how am I going to find the Ross's?" I set up my scope and looked through it and it was the first bird I laid eyes on!!! What luck. A much smaller white goose than the Snows, with a stubby bill with no "grin". Black wing tips just stick out behind.

Probably many more than this. I don't think I've ever seen so many.

My life Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. Unfortunately, it's tail had been molted so it wasn't in perfect plumage. Seen right at the entrance gate. Head, neck, chest and belly white. A bit of "peach" on flanks. Gray back. Tail just growing in is clearly "swallow-tailed". Dark wings.

Amazing, uncountable numbers. There had to be twice as many as this. They were swarming everywhere on migration.

Hundreds, if not thousands on migration were everywhere on the refuge.
