A large gaggle of snow geese blotted out the sky over Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge in Garden City, Missouri, on February 23, as they took part in their annual migration..
Footage from US Fish and Wildlife Service employee Nikki Horne shows the flock of birds flying over Pelican Pool.
“The wetlands are almost completely frozen over at this time,” wrote the Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge on Facebook. “If you look close you’ll notice the geese are actually standing on top of the ice. Birds will continue to arrive and move through in the coming weeks, especially as the ice thaws and open water is available.” Credit: Nikki Horne/USFWS via Storyful
