P.S. Sorry if this sentence made no sense, I meant "peeking" ...

Just to add some useful information, the previously reported family
group of 7 Trumpeters wasn't along Robison Rd. today, so I couldn't add
to this total. 34 is still a low count in comparison with previous
winters. However, the main flock might still be coalescing as they
usually do toward the end of February, just before they migrate out.
