I received a couple of reports of good-sized flocks of Greater Snow Geese
in the Bourget area on Easter Sunday. At Cobbs Creek, just east of town,
Paul Schoening  had a couple of thousand while Ian Clark reported 10s of
thousands there later. This is the largest grouping to date. Scattered
small flocks were observed in various other locations.

To get to Bourget, take Hwy 417 east of Ottawa to the Vars exit. Head north
about 7 km to the T-junction at Russell Road and turn right (east). Bourget
is about 25 km. Cobbs Creek is just east of town along the same road.
