Light Goose Hotline Provides Migration Updates

by NDGFD


 

Light geese have been observed over much of North Dakota, with many more still to come from the south. The forecast in Bismarck through the weekend calls for highs in the 40s-50s and lows near 30.

Some Notes on the Spring Migration Route

Snow goose migration in spring tends to occur farther east than in the fall. Birds generally arrive in the southeastern corner of the state and spread north and northwest through the Valley City, Jamestown, Devils Lake, Rugby and Kenmare areas. However, scattered flocks may be found anywhere in the state during spring.

Birds normally move through the state quickly, their arrival and stay depends on weather and availability of open water and food.
