Kim Carlson looked out her Beaver Creek area window and saw these two feathery critters and couldn’t quite remember their breed. Anyone out there with an idea as to what these visitors were to Kim’s ranch? Send your answer to News@NewsLincolnCounty.com

In answer to Kim Carlson’s question. They are Snow Geese that migrate to California and the Gulf states and East coast. They breed in the Arctic regions of Siberia and North America. I read that they fly very high and not in a V formation but in a wide U shaped line. I’ve seen them in Delaware, huge flocks of them, making the ground look like snow with their white feathers.

The white goose is a juvenile Snow Goose. The lower goose that is brownish is a Greater White-fronted Goose.
