Your snow goose is done! These birds have two possible colorations: they can be white with black wingtips—these are called “whites”—or they can be bluish-grey with a white head, neck, and tail tips—these are called “blues.” Female snow geese return to the place they hatched to breed. Snow geese form strong pair-bonds, and will protect and raise their children together for 2-3 years.
