A family of snow geese feeding in the fields.
The snow geese breeds on the arctic tundra from northern Alaska across arctic Canada to Greenland and northeastern Siberia. They winter primarily in central California, western Gulf coast, and the middle Atlantic coast. Some travel as far south as central Mexico. The swirling white of a descending flock suggests snow, but among the white birds are the blues, a darker phase of the snows. Parents remain with their young for a year. They travel together on both the northbound and southbound migrations, separating only when they reach the arctic breeding grounds. Snow geese mate for life.
