NEW LIVESTREAM TRACKS SNOW-GOOSE MIGRATION
HARRISBURG, PA - Interested in how many snow geese are stopping over at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area?
See for yourself.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission has launched a new livestream that gives a real-time look at what’s happening off Willow Point, a popular waterfowl-watching destination at Middle Creek.
The livestream is one of two to be launched this winter. In coming weeks, a camera will be installed at a site in Monroe County, where a female black bear is denned with her cubs.
Livestreams like these are important educational tools that provide viewers a round-the-clock opportunity to watch wildlife up close in a natural setting.
The Middle Creek livestream also might help visitors determine when to make the trip. The livestream can be accessed through the Snow Goose Migration Update page, found under Quick Clicks at www.pgc.pa.gov
. The page also includes daily updates on snow-goose, tundra-swan and Canada-goose migration, as well as weather and lake conditions.
Middle Creek annually attracts large numbers of northbound migrating waterfowl in late winter, usually in conjunction with spring thaw. In 2018, a record 200,000 estimated snow geese converged on Middle Creek in a single day.
Sightings in such awesome numbers always are a thrill that are sure to translate through the livestream as well, said Game Commission Bureau of Information and Education Director Steve Smith.
“Our livestreams are just one more way of keeping people connected with wildlife,” Smith said.
