When we were at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in NJ, we were looking for Snow Geese. We were glad to see huge numbers of Snow Geese there in multiple locations. I waited for large groups taking off, but they seemed content to just make a lot of noise squawking away.
We did see a few small groups or single geese flying around and even coming right at us, like the featured image.
It was still fun to see large groups in the distance covering a large area, even though we missed the large takeoffs.
