It isn't teeth, but close!!! I found this online:

(The snow goose) has evolved a strong serrated bill and tongue to cut and tear the roots of bulrushes and sedges

WOW beautiful pictures. Good to know you stopped the car before shooting :eyebrows: :laugh:
When I was watching the Olympics and they filmed from a helicopter over Vancouver and landscape, I was wondering each time ... where does Jen live - and where does she go birding :tongue: :cloud: :bighug: :wub:

Oh no, not migration yet. They will be around for another two months. These geese are a bit piggy and must have finished all the food in their field, so were moving to the next one. Either that or an eagle flew past and scared them. Snow Geese are excellent eagle snacks. :eat:

These are so miraculous pictures of the snowy geese - I like her plumage, the black wingtips...
Thank you for pointing, dear Jen :bighug: :wub: .
