North Dakota is under the midcontinent flyway, the thoroughfare used by migratory birds as they move from Canada to Texas or beyond in the fall, and the other direction in the spring.  Add to that we have an abundance of feed in small grain fields, ponds and sloughs for waterfowl,  geese are common to North Dakota.

They are wary birds though, and it’s not often you can capture an image this close.  But if you know where to look you can find shots like this.
