Snow Geese Flock to Wildlife Refuge



A waterbird survey was taken Nov. 28 at the Sequoyah Wildlife Refuge at Vian, and found that snow geese are showing up in the highest numbers in five years.

Chad Ford of the refuge said the survey was taken by volunteers from the Indian Nations Chapter of the Audubon Society and refuge staff and interns.

Below is a summary of the latest waterbird survey. Ford said large numbers of ducks have been moving into the refuge daily and more snow geese have arrived than normal.

Ford said anyone who would like to see the snow geese flocks should visit the refuge at sunrise or sunset. He said the best place to see the geese are immediately after entering the refuge gate. The road goes through the area when the geese like to feed, he said.

The snow geese hunting season is Feb. 19 through March 30. For more information contact the refuge at 918-773-3296.
