|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.
