|A trip to Watkins Lake to check for migrating water fowl is becoming almost an annual habit. We started at Fusilier Farms produce|
stand, where children were picking out their pumpkins and riding on a hay wagon.
|We bought pumpkins and squash, onions and garlic, yams and broccoli,|
hot peppers and mild peppers, and a bag of honeycrisp apples.
|Now that the Watkins Lake area is a State Park, you can have a picnic and birdwatch at the same time. It's|
quite a treat to do both in October. We really enjoyed the warmth of the afternoon.
|Several species of ducks were there, along with huge numbers of Canada|
geese and a few cackling Canadas.
|The white specks along the island are actually geese.|
