Snow Goose

Passing overhead.

1
Greater White-fronted Goose

Sifting through all the Canada Geese on the ice I came across orange feet/legs of a bird obscured by others in front of it. Eventually, the birds reshuffled exposing an adult GWFG. Black barring on the belly, orange bill prominently outlined in white feathers at its base.

A poor digiscoped image of the bird among the Canada Geese.

4
Cackling Goose

Sifting through all the Canada Geese I came across 4 very tiny geese swimming together as a group. Seemingly half the size of the surrounding Canadas with stubby bill and a short necked appearance. Additionally, these birds had a noticeably lighter mantle with a pronounced barred appearance.
