Many snow geese spend their winters in tropical New Jersey, before leaving in the spring to migrate to their breeding grounds north of the timberline in Canada, Alaska, and Greenland. One snow goose visiting Howell Farm had a different idea, however, and has decided to become a non-migratory snow goose, joining the flock of non-migratory Canada geese who already inhabit the farm. Add in the Toulouse geese that were introduced to the farm several years ago, and Howell Farm has become a spot of high goose biodiversity.
