The Snow Geese Are Back!!!

The Snow Goose or also known as the Blue Goose have
arrived back in Alaska.
These geese are now some of the most abundant waterfowl on the 
continent.  I think they are absolutely stunning!!!
They nest in colonies and the females return to where they were born to breed.
These geese mate for life and lay 3 to 5 eggs.
So good to see them back!!!


  1. I saw a V of them fly over me (I thought they were swans - but in hindsight I think they were snow geese). I was driving and I almost wrecked. They are SO amazing! I can't believe you can get a picture so close to one! Beautiful picture!

  2. These geese were extremely distracted by food. They had found a little open patch of water out by Potter's Marsh...I kept inching closer and closer while they had their heads underwater. I have been trying to get some photos of them for over a year. I was so excited, I think I took around 200 photos of beautiful!
    Have a great day Amanda!!!

  3. What a beautiful bird!
