This was our first day identifying six new species. At Fir Island, just west of Conway, WA,
we found hundreds of Snow Geese, a new species for us. There were probably 500 feeding in a field
quite close to the road, unafraid of our presence. In the same area we spotted over a thousand
Mallards and swans. We assumed these were Trumpeter Swans, but there might have been Tundra Swans in the mix.
