Snowy Migration

There’s nothing subtle about snow geese. These showy white and black fowl seem to cry out for our attention with their high-pitched honking in a clear blue sky, or by waking us in the dark of night. Rising from a cornfield or marsh, they overwhelm our senses and remind us of ties to the natural world.—Jim Rathert
