Watch Live Video Of Waterfowl At Middle Creek Wildlife Area, Lancaster County

The Game Commission now has available online live video of waterfowl at the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in Lancaster County as they migrate north through Pennsylvania.
The best times to view snow geese on the lake are sunrise (before they leave to feed in neighboring fields) and sunset (as they return from feeding to roost).
Other species of waterfowl including tundra swans, Canada geese, and many species of ducks can be viewed throughout the day.
Learn more about the snow geese migration at Middle Creek in this webinar. And remember, nature can be difficult to watch.
Middle Creek annually attracts large numbers of northbound migrating waterfowl in late winter, usually in conjunction with spring thaw. In 2018, a record 200,000 estimated snow geese converged on Middle Creek in a single day.
View periodic estimates of the numbers of various waterfowl visiting and annual summaries below the live feed.
As of February 25 there were 85,000 snow geese, 3,500 tundra swans and 2,000 Canada geese.
