Snow Geese on Autumn Migration

One Word Sunday: Spectacle

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is continuing my look back at autumn migration in Saskatchewan, Canada.

A flock of Snow Geese (Anser caerulescens) lift off from a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area. The Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area is a staging area for wildfowl on autumn migration

Snow Geese are native to North America breeding north of the timberline in parts of Greenland, Canada, Alaska and Siberia. They spend their winters in warmer parts of North America.

Thanks Laura. I read somewhere recently that Snow Geese numbers are up to 300,000 on autumn migration these days. The sound of their wings as they take off is as memorable as the sight of them.
