Last week I visited the daffodil fields of the Skagit Valley
and got to see the snowbirds too!
Thousands of snowbirds including snow geese from Russia’s Wrangel Island and trumpeter swans from Canada and Alaska migrate south along the Pacific Flyway to spend the winter in the fertile farmlands of the Skagit Valley.
Maybe they come for the views.
It won’t be long till they start their long journey back to the Arctic.

Oh I’m really liking this post and all the birds and flowers 😀 😀
Oh thank you so much! 🙂
That’s a lot of geese and swans, Susanne! 🙂
Must be impressive to see.
Best wishes, Pete.
It was great to see them… next year I’ll try to go earlier as I suspect some have already started their journey back to the Arctic!
Stunning images of the so yellow daffodils and so white birds!
Thanks so much for your comment. I was thrilled to see both!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a snow bird! Love the daffodils too!
Thank you! I think ‘snow bird’ covers a lot of different varieties of birds that head south for the winter. I believe most of the birds I saw were snow geese who gather by the thousands in the Skagit Valley. I loved seeing them! 🙂
I always love your beautiful pictures! Thank you!
You’re welcome! Glad you enjoy them!
