Two Snow Geese have been at Montrose for the last week. Snow Geese are rare visitors to Montrose, occurring mostly in the fall. These two were part of a moderately large incursion of Snow Geese into the lower Lake Michigan area over the Thanksgiving holiday. The photo at left is of the white morph bird. The other Snow Goose was a dark morph bird.
