According to the Delta Area Chamber of Commerce, "One sign that winter is on its way out is the annual congregation of Lesser Snow Geese in the area around Delta, Utah. Each the latter part of February each year, thousands of these beautiful white birds use the fields and waters between Clear Lake Wildlife Management Area and Delta as a rest stop on their northern migration home for the summer."
The annual migration of these interesting birds over the course of many years have turned this local occurrence into a fun-filled celebratory event with a number of related events occurring each year. You can participate in a Wild Goose Chase Walk or Run, the Dunk, Dunk Goose Water Plunge, the Snow Goose Art & Craft Fair, the Snow Goose Quilt Show and finally, the Wild Goose Skeet Shoot!
