Snow Geese In Flight Bw
Photograph - Photography And Digital Art
It was a most amazing day, with snow geese flying in the thousands all around us at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge in northern Texas! It started with squadron after squadron flying overhead in various loose formations heading for a field not too far away. When we arrived at the field, these squadrons came in for spectacular landings in wave after wave. Then from unknown signals, they took off and landed again in waves in another field with as much precision as military pilots. The main focus of Hagerman is to provide a winter home for thousands of waterfowl. Starting in November, geese by the thousands arrive at the refuge. These winter “snowbird” residents feed on refuge-grown grain, which prepares them for spring migration to summer breeding grounds farther north. By late February, both grain and geese are gone. Maintaining the health and condition of the birds wintering here affects their spring migrational and reproductive successes each year. Up to 7,500 Canada geese and 10,000 snow geese winter at Hagerman. It seemed that all 10,000 of the snow geese were flying that day!
