Snow Geese Chicks

The Snow Geese Junior Hockey team.  They had a Hockey mom getting after them a little for what sounded like a lack of effort.  You can’t blame her too much.  Look at them;  they look like they don’t have a care in the world.

Greater Chicks

Greater White Fronted Goose Chicks work hard to put on size

Well, as you know July is “chicks” month up here in Alaska and there are a ton of them out there this year.  We had the Pacific loon cam up on the internet for all to see and a couple of trips to the arctic always yields and eye (and card) full.  I will try to get some additional ones posted also.  These Greater White Fronted Goose chicks were just chowing down. They have plenty to eat up here but you can definitely sense the urgency of trying to put on size.  There wings are so little it is hard to believe they will make it out of here in two months.  They had better though; it gets a wee bit rough up here in the winter.
