wild goose chase

The last two nights, Stina has come home reporting that there was a huge flock of snow geese (Chen caerulescens) right outside town in a cornfield. We drove around Wednesday night but missed them before they all flew to the lake. Last night we managed to find a few....

 

They come in two color morphs: white with black wingtips and the "blue" morph which has a gray-blue body and a lighter colored head. You can see both morphs here.

 

Happy Feathery Friday!
