One field at the north end of Reeder Road was Cackling central. Thousands were there when we arrived in later afternoon…and dozens more were arriving, flock after flock. As with the cranes, many of the geese now on Sauvie will move further south though most stay in the Willamette Valley. Keeping a very low profile was a quartet of white-fronted geese on the back side of this Cackling crowd.
In the one shot above that is all sky a flock of Cacklers passes beneath a soaring eagle.
