Mid-Atlantic trip: A Snow Goose Interlude

Snow geese, Pea Island, Cape Hatteras, NC

I'd never seen a single snow goose (one of the reasons motivating this trip). And now suddenly I'm seeing hundreds. I'm instantly captivated.

Fascinating in large huddled groups (the game: find the goose facing the wrong way)

Lovely as individuals

And astonishingly beautiful in flight.

(A taste of things to come).

Day 1, Part 3: Pea Island
