Snow Goose in South Iceland


Snow Goose is an annual guest in Iceland. They can usually be seen here in early spring or late autumn. We got the news about two Snow Geese located near Þykkvibær village by the South Coast. Þykkvibær village is near the coast meaning it is mild there and a lot of potato and barley fields. So a lot of Graylag Geese are staying there during winter. As well as Whopper Swans. And where you have Geese you can also find Gyr Falcons and Merlin. 

We did not have any luck with the Snow Goose for the first time we went there, it wasn´t until the sixth time we saw them. One white and the other one was the dark morph "Blue Goose".
