Snow Geese Migration

March 20, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

 

The spring migration is on for snow geese.  As an estimated 50,000 of them spend winter in New Mexico's Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge along the Rio Grande, during spring they migrate north to their breeding grounds.  

Most snow geese that spend winters here in New Mexico go to Canada or the Alaskan tundra, but it's astonishing that some of these birds breed as far as Siberia!  

That's quite a journey flying at 35 mph.

 


Snow geese typically take off "all at once". 

It's as if one of them gives the go ahead and in a loud "woosh", they're suddenly all in the air.
