A Screen Full of Snow Geese

Species: Snow Geese, Tundra Swans | Location: PA, United States

In February at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area snow geese invade the area as part of their migration. Average numbers are over 70,000. In 2007 they had a peek of 170,000. When they all take off the sight is amazing. The sound is almost deafening. It needs to be seen. There are normally some tundra swans that join them. Their numbers average 5,000-10,000.

About The Photographer

Cropped me

I have done photography for 40 years, off and on. The last 5 years I have gotten more serious about it and have become addicted to bird photography. I like to shoot everything I get a chance to photograph. I became disabled 10 years ago so if my chronic pain is not too bad I can get out when I want to. I am limited to where I can get to in my powerchair. Everything I shoot is from my powerchair or my car.
