The number of snow geese seen in our area has been steadily trending down these past few weeks, from hundreds of thousands to a few thousands. Yesterday, we drove to the Edwin B Forsythe Wildlife Refuge in Brigantine, NJ to take a look at the few that are left as they prepared to leave.

While we watched, the geese took off in waves.

Here’s how two of them looked as they flew over us, on their way to their breeding areas near the North Pole.

By the way, I saw one snowy owl also, but it was too far for my lens to reach. I took several shots but all one can see is a white blob out there in the marshes.
