Black Dirt Geese – 3/21/14

Cackling Goose in the Black Dirt Region, 3/21/14. I like this photo because it you can see the difference between the Canada and the Cackling Goose.

I took a quick but productive tour of the Black Dirt Region after work today. I was unable to relocate any large flocks of Snow Geese, but did find some larger groups of Canada Geese, and among them some gems:

  • Cackling Goose (1)
  • Grester White-fronted Goose (2)
  • Snow Goose (60)

Maybe there are still some large groups of Snow Geese around – there are certainly areas I did not get to tonight. Maybe this weekend will produce a Barnacle Goose or even a Pink-footed Goose? A Ross’s Goose? Who knows?

    Thanks for this shot. It is a really great teaching shot. I like it when you put info that helps and this one does the trick..They look so similar, but there are subtle differences you don’t notice from a distance.

  2. Hi Matt
    I agree with the other commenters. A real nice shot! Paula was able to really appreciate the way you showed the difference with the side by side shot.

  3. Thanks everyone! I was really happy with that shot especially because the bird was not very close – this is cropped pretty good. Matt
