Canada geese and other waterfowl in western Minnesota.

On Monday October 19 I traveled through western Minnesota while returning from a pheasant hunting trip to South Dakota.  I saw  large flocks of Canada geese and some mallards feeding in flooded farm fields from the South Dakota border east to about Morris, MN.  Several thousand geese were using Crystal Lake in Morris.  The current rainy weather will provide additional sheet water in the area.  Some soybeans were being harvested but most of the corn was still standing.
