Snow Goose Photo

Watching huge flocks of Snow Geese swirl down from the sky, amid a cacophony of honking, is a little like standing inside a snow globe. These loud, white-and-black geese can cover the ground in a snowy blanket as they eat their way across fallow cornfields or wetlands. Among them, you might see a dark form with a white head—a color variant called the “Blue Goose.” Snow Geese have skyrocketed in numbers and are now among the most abundant waterfowl on the continent.

Ducklike
Ducklike
Typical Voice
  • Size & Shape

    A medium-sized goose with a hefty bill and long, thick neck. Juveniles are slightly smaller than adults in the fall, and this can be noticeable in flocks during fall and early winter.

  • Color Pattern

    The Snow Goose is a white-bodied goose with black wingtips that are barely visible on the ground but noticeable in flight. The pink bill has a dark line along it, often called a "grinning patch" or "black lips." You may also see dark morph Snow Geese, or "Blue Geese," with a white face, dark brown body, and white under the tail.

  • Behavior

    Snow Geese don’t like to travel without the company of another couple dozen geese and can form flocks of several hundred thousand. Family groups forage together on wintering grounds, digging up roots and tubers from muddy fields and marshes. In flight, they are steady on the wing with even wingbeats.

  • Habitat

    Snow Geese adapted quickly to use agricultural fields, which is one reason their populations are doing so well. During winter and migration, look for them in plowed cornfields or wetlands. Also check lakes, ponds, and marshes where they roost and bathe along shorelines and in open water. Snow Geese breed on Arctic tundra.

Similar Species

Ross’s Goose looks like a miniature, small-billed version of a Snow Goose. Look carefully for them, as huge flocks of Snow Geese often contain a few Ross's Geese. Ross’s Goose has a petite rounded head and a stout, shorter bill without the dark “grinning patch.” They also have a dainty personality, carefully plucking grass rather than rooting in mud, so they lack the rusty staining you often see on Snow Goose faces. Tundra Swan, Trumpeter Swan, and Mute Swan are much larger, with longer necks, and lack the Snow Goose's black wingtips. Trumpeter Swans and Tundra Swans have dark bills and feet and Mute Swan has a bulbous orange bill. You may also see all-white domestic geese and ducks, but these typically have orange bills and feet, lack the black wing feathers, and have shape differences such as heavy bottoms and an ungainly waddle.

Find This Bird

Look for Snow Geese in open fields and bodies of water in their wintering grounds across the United States, or passing high overhead during migration. During spring and fall migration, the geese will stop over in open habitats along the four major North American flyways. If the geese are around, they’ll be hard to miss: a cacophony of honks accompanying a huge flock either on the ground or in the air.
