Most Northerly Breeding Geese in the World
There is only one population of Greater Snow Geese in the world. It is almost entirely confined to the Atlantic flyway of North America, stretching from the Arctic down to the United States Atlantic coast.
A full 1/3 of the entire population centers on Bylot Island in Lancaster Sound. This makes Greater Snow Geese the most northerly breeding geese in the world.
When winter comes, they move down the flyway to the United States Atlantic coast.
