Snow Goose – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Snow Goose:

The Snow Goose - also called the Blue Goose - is a large bird native to the the Western Arctic and North America. They are large birds with an average length of 27.2–32.7 inches (69–83 centimeters) weighing 56.4–116.4 ounces (1600–3300 grams) with a wingspan of 54.3 in (138 centimeters). During the 1900s, the bird was almost extinct, with a population of a mere one or two thousand individuals. But since then their numbers have become very large, estimated to be in the area of 5,000,000 birds, which is a dramatic increase even from just a few decades ago. They're know for their massive migrations, which is from their nesting areas in the arctic to areas south, and during this they can cover some 3,000 miles. These large birds feed almost exclusively on plant materials like seeds, leaves and the roots of aquatic vegetation. The young will occasionally feed on insects.
