The usual tranquility of Llano Seco had a new twist on Christmas Day. Normally. the geese stay to the far west of the refuge and leave the viewing area up front to the more subdued sound and activity of the ducks. The mintue we got out of the car we could hear the garrulous activity of the Snows and White Fronted Geese just to the South. It wasn't long before a cruising Bald Eagle had them up in the air. About the time one group would settle back down in the water, another group would head upward. The sound and activity of the geese in great numbers never cease to send an exhilarated rush through me!
