A flock of greater white fronted geese fly over Beluga Slough Monday morning.

A huge flock of greater white-fronted geese flew in this weekend over Kachemak Bay, drawing a steady stream of bird watchers on Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning. At Beluga Slough, hundreds of geese fed in the slough, some within yards of the Lake Street path. Along with the greater white-fronted geese could be seen smaller flocks of cackling geese, a species similar to Canada geese but not as large, and snow geese. Shorebirds also can be seen in the slough, including greater yellowlegs.

Will they be here for shorebird

I saw those birds yesterday - was not sure what they were. I don't remember seeing so many of them in that location in the past. is this an unusual event, or have I simply missed them?
