Every year thousands of snow geese, Canada geese, and tundra swans come to our area to visit. Their resort of choice is Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, where they hang out from late winter into the spring before heading on. Propagation areas are carefully preserved for them, and visitors are not allowed in those areas. But we humans can come watch them in the lake area, and it is popular spot this time of year. Some 60,000 snow geese are visiting right now, along with thousands of Canada geese and tundra swans. These photos don’t do the scene justice, but maybe it will give you an idea of how special this place is. Enjoy!

  1. Awesome! We get migrating Canadian geese here and there are some who stay year round. Locally the folks don’t like them because they poop. For heaven’s sake! Every living thing poops! I used to love to feed them corn. Now there’s a $400 find if you are caught feeding them. Love your pictures.
