Bird Pic Of The Week

Snow Geese

(Chen caerulescens)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge

Notes: On a day-trip to one of our favorite birding locations on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, I heard a distant noise from high in the sky. It was the honking of Snow Geese. This is a sound I have only heard a hand full of times and only in the winter. Straight overhead was the skein of geese that was just barely visible. They circled as they descended. Soon they were circling the corner of Swan Lake across from the Tom's Cove visitor center. As they arrived I could hear even more birds in the distance. They too approached in the same way and soon more honking filled the air. I stood watching group after group descend from a high altitude to eventually splash down in the eastern corner of the fresh water lake. After a half hour of arrivals, there was an estimated 2,500 to 3,000 birds on the ground and in the water. When a mass like this gather, it is almost as if they become one large organism.
