Snow goose

Chen caerulescens

Description:

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.

Habitat:

Wetland areas with open waters.

Notes:

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.
