As Autumn advances migration begins

Posted by Steven (Colorado, United States) on 22 October 2017 in Animal & Insect.

As the first frosts of Autumn arrive and leaves change colour, the geese begin to gather from across the Front Range of the Rockie Mountains. They form and reform in groups which gradually increase in size. In a few more weeks, the groups will grow to well over 100 birds and will begin to depart for their Winter habitats. This photo is of a newly formed group making a day excursion to a feeding area.
