What do Geese and Tulips have in common ? at this time of year we have the Skagit Valley tulip festival and it coincides with the annual migration of the Snow Geese, they stop off to rest and fatten up on their way to the arctic circle to breed. This makes for great photographic opportunities, if you can't get one your bound to get the other. One other migratory bird of note in the NW are the Sandhill crane common to Eastern Washington during their migration.
