Snowgoose launch


In case you were wondering about snowgoose takeoffs, they also take a quick step or two as they begin to flap their wings.  This all happens very quickly and it was even more difficult to isolate which geese would take off as there were many more of them and they didn’t exhibit any “tell” like the cranes did by straightening their necks.  Here’s a late afternoon shot that I got of a couple of the last geese taking off before the cranes came back in.

"the cranes are coming, the cranes are coming!!"

“the cranes are coming, the cranes are coming!!”
