Mike D. and Mobirders -
I guess Snow Geese  winter here - and in huge numbers.  Those were
probably not migrants that you observed on your trip from Wichita on
home to Rolla.
The Liberal MO. CBC had over 23,000 as I recall, Dec. 29.  The nearby
Southeast KS. Mined Land count "only" had 3,000 this year, Jan. 1st.
Good birding,
