Greater Snow Goose at Chincoteague
Chincoteague Refuge was originally established in 1943 to provide habitat for migratory birds (with an emphasis on conserving Greater Snow Goose), today it provides habitat for waterfowl, wading birds, shorebirds, and song birds, as well as other species of wildlife and plants. (Taken from the Chincoteague brochure)
I was lucky enough too had seen many of these refuge Snow Goose! While walking around the wildlife loop, I could hear them from a distance and when they came in for a landing . . . . I thought they would never stop coming! Greater Snow Goose (CHECK) following each other for miles and miles!
After a while I found myself taking other photos of some birdies like the Green-winged Teal, Northern Shoveler and Greater Yellowlegs . . . . then I realized these Geese started flying right over my head! I was watching as they flew closer and closer right over my head! I think this is any photographers dream!
