Snow geese breed from late May to mid August, but they leave their nesting areas and spend more than half the year on their migration to-and-from warmer wintering areas. During spring migration, large flocks of snow geese fly very high along narrow corridors, more than 3000 miles from traditional wintering areas to the tundra.
Wetland areas with open waters.
These Geese were actually visitors to a lake at the zoo. They were just passing by to enjoy some free food and visit some of there friends.
