Migration Update

First stop is South Dakota. Once the birds begin (and they have) arriving in northern tier counties the day’s get closer to a North Dakota arrival. Here’s the latest:


This information is current as of Monday, April 1, 2013.
The snow geese are just starting to make it up to the Sand Lake area. A few small
flocks of snow geese were seen near Sand Lake over the weekend and early this
afternoon there were large flocks flying in the vicinity of Sand Lake. None were seen on
the ground. There are reports of large numbers of snow geese up near US highway 12, in
the Aberdeen and Groton areas, and in southern Brown County and throughout Spink and
Beadle Counties.
There is still about 4 inches of snow at Sand Lake and very little open water.
Temperatures are predicted to reach near 50 degrees by Wednesday, and then drop back
to the 40’s the remainder of the week.
