Default Last of the Snow Geese til Next Year

The White Geese are all starting migrate back up north. Such a beautiful site. It won't be long before they are all gone and I will have to wait until next November to see them again.

Are they leaving a bird sanctuary or a lake? Where are they heading to?

They are leaving the Sacramento Valley which is in the middle of the Pacific Flyway for migratory birds. They are all mostly out in the rice fields and are heading back north to the Arctic Circle above Canada for summer breeding.


This particular location is one of the wildlife refuges near by where the birds tend to concentrate and rest before the long haul back north.

Beautiful photographs. Beautiful geese. I've never seen a snow goose. After seeing your photos, I really need to make an effort to get to an area where I can see them when they migrate through my part of the country.
