We need more snow geese

You didn’t think I was going to post one snow goose photo and leave it at that, did you? Here’s the link to my previous post on snow geese in which I mention that New England, for the most part, misses out (but not by much) on the massive snow goose migrations.

I found these snow geese near the beach at Cayuga State Park in Seneca Falls, N.Y., during a camping trip with three long-time friends. Yes, it’s not New England, but it’s only a few hours drive away and the area gets so many snow geese that people actually complain about them. (At least the one wine pourer did.) It just goes to show the narrow margin by which New England misses the spectacle.

Here are some more shots of the geese. There were four geese there when we visited in late September. In a few weeks, the mowed corn fields will be filled with these beautiful birds.

  2. Well, if you need a historical excuse, that part of New York probably fell within Massachusetts-Bay’s “sea to sea” charter back in colonial times. So we can call it “olde New England.”
    (Many of the 13 colonies had overlapping claims, due to inaccurate maps and the Crown often not being careful to check to see if the land had already been granted. That’s why your state of residence, Connecticut, once claimed parts of Pennsylvania and Ohio: another “sea to sea” grant.)
