Feb 13, 2013: Greater White-fronted Geese

Greater White-fronted Geese. 2/13/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

These Greater White-fronted Geese are the first ones I've seen at the Park this year.  Twenty-one were found on the south lake ice.  They are also known as "Speckle-bellies", due to the black markings on the belly.  They breed on the tundra and taiga.
