I'm afraid I couldn't possibly guess. Great pictures, though!

There is a method of counting that's sometimes used by birdwatchers. You divide the photo into small squares then count how many birds in one square, then multiply up to make an estimate of the total number in the photo. I reckon, by that method, that there's between 4,000 and 5,000 birds in that last photo.

How fabulous! I imagine a bit noisy too! So many beaks, feathers, moving together without much direction. Just a big wow!

I have just learned about snow geese this year and experienced them at a wildlife refuge. It's two hours away but we get up there a few days each month. Great shots of the geese filling the sky.

Absolutely amazing.

This is totally amazing! I love it when they fly in such large numbers. I have only seen this a couple of times at Blackwater Wildlife Reserve and I never tire of seeing it! These are magnificent images.

OMG. There were snow geese here a month ago -- but not that many. WOW. Did enjoy going over some past postings on your blog

Oh my gosh, I've never seen that many snow geese before. These are really pretty photos, Rose. Love that first one.

Have a good January week.
