Skagit Valley is not only a wonderful place to admire fascinating spring flowers but also it’s a great spot to view impressive snow geese. The Skagit Valley fields make popular destinations for photographers, nature lovers, and avid bird watchers that want to immerse in Washington’s most spectacular event, the arrival of migrating birds. 

Skagit County provides the habitat for thousands of fascinating bird species such as Snow Geese, Trumpeter Swans, and Tundra swans during the winter. It’s the best place for them to rest, feed and prepare for a long and sometimes difficult flight. Lots of birds come to the Pacific Northwest from Alaska, Siberia, and Wrangel Island, Russia.

Snow geese have white bodies, black wingtips, and pinkish-orange bills, legs, and feet.  But actually, not all Snow Geese are white! The young geese can be grey or dark grey-brown. These migrating birds are complete vegetarians. Their diet consists of grasses, wheat, grains, etc. You 

Over 50,000 birds spend fall, winter and spring on the rich farmlands of Skagit Valley fields. From time to time, you can see large flocks of geese performing an intricate dance in the sky! It’s a spectacular show! The farm fields turn white when these noisy majestic birds fly from one field to another. 

Photos below will take you to Skagit Valley in Washington State! Look at these wonderful birds and get close to nature!
