These are photos from the Reifel Sanctuary and Iona Beach (which is by the Vancouver International Airport). Most of these photos are from mid-October when the families were arriving in the Fraser River Estuary from their fall migration.

This is the huge flock that had just arrived at the Reifel Sanctuary after the fall migration. They arrived in mid-October.

The same evening, I went to Iona Beach - close to Vancouver Airport - and was lucky enough to park right beside the landing strip for the families of geese that were landing to spend the night before joining the big flock the next day.

They were very shy, so I took these shots from the car.

Back at Reifel Sanctuary, there are thousands of geese in the distance. These shots are from December and January. Even at this distance, the sound of that many snow geese all sounding an alarm at once is enough to ring through your head for days.
