After work today, I made it out to the black dirt region of Orange County to look for the Pink-footed Goose that was found yesterday by Curt and Ken McDermott. I did not have any luck with the PFGO, but I did enjoy the amazing show put on by what I estimate was approximately 3500 Snow Geese. Please click HERE to see a 30 second clip that I got with my iPhone – not the best quality, but it really gives and idea of what it was like to be there. I have of course seen Snow Geese on videos and in photos, but this was the first time I have ever witnessed anything like this and it was thrilling. None of these photos are very good as it was sunset or later when this all happened. They were all shot with an ISO of 1600 or higher, which results in very “noisy” photos with my camera. Good birds, bad photos. Amazing birding. Happy Birder.
