Migration at Oak Hammock Marsh

322 4


The marsh is starting to get busy with all types of birds that are migrating south for the winter. The marsh will be extremely busy until the end of October with migrating birds. In this picture the sun is about 1/2 an hour from setting and the Geese are starting to fly in from the fields to sleep for the evening. There was thousands upon thousands of black birds and starlings mingling amongst the Canada Geese and Yellowlegs. I thought the water level had dropped due to the draught conditions this summer in Manitoba. However, we were told that it was part of their marsh management program to help the new growth of bullrushes and other marsh grasses this summer.
