A Whole Lot of Honkin Going On!

Posted by Dan Satterfield

While driving near Snow Hill, Maryland today, I came across a real spectacle; thousands of Snow Geese Were they loud you ask? Let’s just say there was a whole lotta honking going on! I had my Canon 5D with me, so I jumped out and grabbed the pictures above/below. The Eastern Shore of Maryland and all of Delaware are an east coast birders paradise, so we’re used to seeing a wide variety of birds. The show this group put on today though was definitely memorable!

We see these mainly in winter, and they breed in the High Arctic under a midnight sun. I’ve seen them there as well, not far from Resolute Island. Feel free to use for educational/non-commercial purposes.
