Bosque - Snow Geese 1

Snow Geese roosted with Sandhill Cranes, but took to the wing very early, heading to grain fields to graze.



By 7:30am most had taken off, but this one lingered ...


Context photos are appropriate. Distant Snow Geese are a white mass in a field. By 10am, they were beginning to move toward water for bathing, preening, and socializing. Note: in the distant there are Canada Geese, Sandhill Cranes, and a murder of crows ...



By 2s, 3s, and often dozens, they moved from the distant field to the water ...



More soon. Good Birding!

Wonderful photos, the numbers are stunning. I hope to see both of these birds soon for the first time.

Great shots Chris. You capture the expanse of these flocks very well, though my favorite shot has got to be the single Snowy waiting it out with the Sandhill Cranes.
