Specks flying north last week

I live in the north east Elk Grove area and saw numerous flights of specks heading north last week. I am way off the flyway so it was quite a surprise to see these flights almost daily last week.

Anyone else notice flights like these? Are they headed back to Canada?

I also live in Elk Grove. During the past several nights I have been woken up several times between 1:30 am and 3:30 am by low flying Specks! I have seen a bunch crowded in what little water is left @ the Consumnes area off of twin city road and I-5.
Specks are the last geese to reach the breading grounds and they are the first to leave the breading grounds... Busy Birds! to say the least. :thumbsup:
Oh yea, I think Elk grove is part of a small flyway, We have the Stone lake refuge next to us and the Consumnes area South of us.(which holds thousands of waterfowl!) I see Lots of snows, specks, and sandhills flying over my house on a regular basis.
