Snow Geese Migration, Quebec City area, Quebec, Canada 26

Snow Geese Migration, Quebec City area, Quebec, Canada 26

Description : It,s a one-of-a-kind sight! Twice a year, hundreds of thousands of snow geese make a stopover on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. In the fall, on their way back from Baffin and Bylot islands, they take a break and fuel up in Québec before continuing the long journey to their warm, winter habitat. Then, in the spring they return, stopping by as they wing their way to the Great North, where they spend their summers. It,s an annual pilgrimage nearly 4,000 km (2,500 mi.) long! You can watch them as they soar through the skies or, better yet, go observe them at their three preferred resting spots!
