Record #109910:

Snow-patch foraging by pink-footed geese Anser brachyrhynchus in south Iceland / A.D. Fox, H. Gitay, H. Boyd, C. Tomlinson.

Title: Snow-patch foraging by pink-footed geese Anser brachyrhynchus in south Iceland / A.D. Fox, H. Gitay, H. Boyd, C. Tomlinson.
Author(s): Fox, A. D.

Date: 1991.
In: Holarctic Ecology. (1991.), Vol. 14(2) (1991)
Abstract: Pre-nesting feeding behaviour of up to 120 pink-footed geese was studied in hayfields in southern Iceland (at Spóastadhir, Skálholt, Biskupstungur) during late spring 1989. Areas within 1 m of snow patches had significantly greater amounts of green material than those farther away, and geese spent nearly 60 times more time feeding within 1 m of snow patches than might have been expected by chance, and 20 times more time within 2-5 m.
