Lesser Snow Geese

The Lesser Snow Goose ( Chen caerulescens ) is a large bird that is all white with black wing tips. In the Fall Lesser Snow Geese migrate south along the west coast from Wrangel Island in Siberia. This year their annual migration is twice the size of last year. During migration they fly so high they can barely be seen. Click on the photo to see a larger version.
