Bird Pic Of The Week

Ross's Goose

(Chen rossii)

Where: Socorro County, NM • Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge (NWR)

Notes: This is another image from a magical day spent along the shore of a pond covered with Ross's and Snow Geese in New Mexico. Thousands and thousands of Geese. It was the perfect opportunity to practice flight shots because small gaggles would fly in and out every few minutes. Other Geese were swimming in close proximity to the shore. Clear blue skies provided an even backdrop and ample light for the high speed needed to capture the action. Since this species of Goose is not as common in the east, I was particularly interested in getting a good shot or two. The circumstances allowed a variety of poses and actions, such as swimming, portrait and flight. The Ross's has a shorter neck and a stubbier beak than the slightly larger, more abundant Snow Goose. It breeds in the central Arctic and migrates south over the winter.
