snow goose update-posted Doug Leier
While most of the migration appears to remain south, large numbers of snow geese could be on the move into the state this weekend with temperatures to be in the 60s on Saturday. Snow geese have been observed in North Dakota mainly in the southeastern and south central portions of the state.
Some Notes on the Spring Migration Route
Snow goose migration in spring tends to occur farther east than in the fall. Birds generally arrive in the southeastern corner of the state and spread north and northwest through the Valley City, Jamestown, Devils Lake, Rugby and Kenmare areas. However, scattered flocks may be found anywhere in the state during spring.
Birds normally move through the state quickly, their arrival and stay depending on weather and availability of open water and food.
