Have the White Geese/Snow Geese moved on North?

I try to go to Summer Lake each March to see the White Geese/Snow Geese. I know it is a bit outside the Klamath Basin, but wanted to know if they have mostly moved on from the Klamath area? It is usually a good proxy on if I might still see some at Summer Lake.

With the more snowy winter, I was curious if they might have a slightly delayed migration north.

Thank you,

Kevin D. and all,

The Snow/Ross's Geese have not entirely moved on. Many linger into May. They are down in numbers here, however. They usually reach their peak in the area in mid-March. But on Friday, later in the afternoon, I saw a good sized flock of more than 10K along Township Road. They were mostly Snow Geese there. I don't know what numbers are still at Miller Island. 

Geese numbers will drop off pretty quick now, and it will be small flocks of Greater White-fronted Geese with some white geese mixed in as we approach May, and into the first part of May.
