A huge flock of snow geese passed through …
… on their way from the southern U.S. states and Mexico to their breeding grounds in the Arctic. I don’t know how many individuals were in this gigantic flock, but there were a lot of them. When congregating to breed, they sometimes number in the millions!

This giant flock was an amazing sight! I’ve never seen so many birds congregated like that.
An awesome sight. We have seen large flocks around Garry Point near Steveston, but this one takes the cake. They do stop over here, but we have never been out to the lake nearby to see it. Thanks for sharing Lynette. Allan
This is the first time I’ve seen these enormous numbers. I initially couldn’t believe my eyes! For a second I thought we had snow (unbelievably since it’s so warm), but then they were startled and began flying so I scrambled my cell out to get a picture. I haven’t seen the ones near Steveston, and that may be a retirement stop!
Whoa! Dat’s a lotta geese! Did you take that photo? I wouldn’t want to be walking my dog around that area after they leave. 😏
Yes, from a distance with my cell. It was unbelievable, Lori. I have never before seen that many birds. Once they were airborne, they circled and headed north. They blanketed the sky with their numbers! They were actually out on the lake near the shore, so most of their droppings would be in the water.
It really was. 🙂
MY CAR!!! Aw, Dammit, I just washed it.
🙂 Oh yes, this crew could leave a lot of … um … mess to clean up!
WOW! LOve this!
It was an amazing sight, Cindy. And the honking! Such a chorus.
What a beautiful sight! Make sure to have an umbrella open if you stand under them.
Haha😁 I was quite far from them and they were on the lake (and over it) when they took off, so we were pretty safe!
I’ve been splatted on by a seagull once, so I wouldn’t want that experience times many hundreds.
Yes, the same happened to me once. A very unpleasant experience! I was far enough away not to have to worry about overhead assaults!
Now that’s a gaggle of geese!
Thank you very much. 🙂
