Snow Geese Landing
Snow Geese landing in the early evening. It was loud and awesome. Huge flocks of snow geese would fly up into the air, calling to each other and to those below. Some would fly off, while others circled and landed. The ones on the ground called as well. I was caught up in the magic.
Shot taken in Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico, where thousands of these geese spend the winter.
From Cornell Labs: “These loud, white-and-black geese can cover the ground in a snowy blanket as they eat their way across fallow cornfields or wetlands. Snow Geese have skyrocketed in numbers and are now among the most abundant waterfowl on the continent.”
