On our trip to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe NWR, we saw this lone Snow Goose multiple times around one area of the refuge. Usually they are all gone from the Refuge at this time of the year. But seeing it multiple times around a certain area it seemed like the one wing might be injured. We also saw it just walking along the side of the Wildlife Drive.
As most geese are monogamous, I always feel a bit sad for the lonely ones. Hope this one recovers.
Yes, I hope so also!
Poor sweetie. Nice to see it’s a survivor and looks healthy. There is a lone Snow Goose at Blackwater NWR that the refuge said was injured, but its survived a couple summers now, living in an isolated area on the refuge.
Yes, I think I have seen that one also at Blackwater. They do seem to be survivors!
