  1. Amazing show of the flight of the snow geese!! Thank you so much, Ken. What a treat it must have been to be there in person.


    1. It was very special to witness. They seemed to wait until it was their turn to fly. The noise was amazing.


  2. Ken is such a talented photographer! So pleased he shared all of these fabulous photos and a video with us.


  3. I was up there a week and a half ago and didn’t find any until I got over by Stanwood. Found bunch that also took flight but not nearly as many as you saw. That is awesome. Thanks for sharing.


  4. I was on Fidalgo Island last Saturday and looked up as THOUSANDS of snow geese were flying high overhead, in formations, heading north. Harbinger of Spring? Wave after wave flew over. It was an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime moment.
