Snow Geese
Chen caerulescens

These were pretty far away for me to easily identify, but a close examination of the photo showed that they had contrasting light and dark on the underside of their wings and were light-bodied. These characteristics are enough to identify them as Snow Geese.

Location: Halibut Point Road, Sitka, Alaska
