Some Notes on the Spring Migration Route
March 24 - Based on snow cover, weather forecasts and migration progress, light goose migration will push through North Dakota over the next few weeks with birds already in the state.
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.
