Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, Texas

Thought i’d share a few photos from our trip to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge in December. Going in the winter is one of my favourite times of year, each season has it’s own distinct wildlife at the refuge but during December/January there are usually thousands of Snow Geese which makes an amazing natural spectacle.

These birds are Snow Geese and Ross’s Geese. I think they spend the summer in the arctic and migrate south to the Southern US and Mexico during the winter. As you can see there are literally thousands of them.
There were a lot of different ducks present, i believe this one is a Northern Pintail. In the background there’s a Great Blue Heron sitting there on the branch.
Just as the sun was setting this Northern Harrier flew across from the other side of the lake.

Howdy, my name’s Matt. I'm originally from England but now live here in the Great State of Texas. Since moving here I thought it would be fun to try something new and enter the world of photo blogging.
