Migrating geese


Recommended Posts

I snapped these shots haphazardly the other afternoon, in northern NJ.  Through some tree branches, unfortunately, and with no time to zoom in for a closer look.  Would anyone be willing to venture an opinion – such as from their formation - whether they’re more likely to be Canada Geese or Snow Geese?  I do not remember hearing any honking.  Thanks.

I would guess Snow based on the lazy V shape, even in large groups Canadas tend to be a bit more coordinated. 

but I’m in no way sure these birds are SNGO

That's the direction I was sortof leaning, too, for exactly the reason you said.  Wish I'd spotted them a few seconds sooner and had time to get a closer shot and before the trees interfered.

I'm fine with it remaining a mystery, though; that's part of what makes this hobby exciting/intriguing, IMO.  😁
