Stirring up the Snow Geese

The Snow Geese are back at Reelfoot Lake, and the Bald eagles are keeping an eye on them in hopes of acquiring an easy meal.  Whenever a lookout detects a threat from an eagle, a call goes out to the rest of the flock, and the Snow Geese take flight.

“If you feel the urge, don’t be afraid to go on a wild goose chase.  What do you think wild geese are for anyway?”  ~Will Rogers

  1. These are gorgeous, Rebecca, I love Snow Geese and Bald Eagles! And don’t you just love the sound when SG take flight, it’s beauty to the ears! Just watch out for any of them flying overhead, lol. 🙂

  2. We like to drive down to MacKay Wildlife Refuge in winter to see the Snow Geese and Tundra Swans. It’s an amazing sight (as you know) to see so many. We’d better go soon if we’re going this year, won’t be long before they head home. Thanks for the reminder!
