My Snow Geese Photography Experience

I was in the Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge in December for both the Sandhill Cranes and the Snow Geese. The Snow Geese would gather in mass in the corn fields and then explode all together into the air. The explosion shots were a challenge but also fun. At the end of the day, photos of snow geese flying in to land in the ponds was the other attraction.

Facts About Snow Geese

The snow goose (Chen caerulescens) is a species of North American goose that may be either white or dark with black wingtips and pink legs and a bill with black gape (“grin”), belonging to the family Anatidae (order Anseriformes). Overhunting reduced snow goose numbers to only a few thousand by 1900, but since the mid-20th century the population has increased to five million. Snow geese are thought to mate for life.

The Explosions Of The Snow Geese

As a wildlife photographer, I have wanted to capture photos of Snow Geese during the morning explosion from the lake. It is remarkable how they are all gathered in the lake before dawn and then, without warning, explode out of the water at the same time. They repeat this behavior later in the morning while feeding in the cornfields.

They fly south for the winter and in addition to locations in the mid-west, they can be found in December at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. When you photograph them for their pre-dawn takeoff, be sure to wear a hat. They do tend to release the payload.
