 Most fishermen are dedicated to their sport.  Ice fisherpersons have got to be even more dedicated.

Brant Goose spotted at Sweet Arrow Lake


Checked the Sweet Arrow photo page and noticed no postings for awhile; decided to send you a few of the Brant Goose I took a week or so ago. They are pretty rare visitors to our area. Looks like this one decided to make a stop at the lake and fuel up before continuing.

Red-tailed Hawk takes on a rattlesnake and wins.

Tom Jobe spotted this Red-Tailed Hawk dispatching a rattlesnake and is sharing his photos with us.  It was not at Sweet Arrow Lake but near Tower City.  Great photos of an unusual event.

Tom Jobe finds a Barnacle Goose

Stopped at the lake this morning to see the large flock of geese at
the boat launch and found this guy among them.  From photos I took, I ID'd
it as a Barnacle Goose, a rare sighting in PA -- wanted to share it with
you.  Tom Jobe

Very rare indeed-  Great job Tom!
