There had been reports in various locations of lone Snow or Ross's (or Ross's x Snow Hybrid) Goose following a flock of Canada Geese. Not too sure about the ID with this shot, but I think it's a Snow Goose with a larger bill with a "grin", or could be a hybrid. Nonetheless, it's the closest I've ever gotten on one of these. Feel free to correct me on the ID. Thanks!

What a great season to catch many thousands of Snow Geese. It was so many such that some were spilled out onto the roads. I noticed a few photos that they pooped in the air. Hope nobody got pooped at while busily viewing/photographing the Snow Geese. Enjoy this blast off / Snow Geese in flight series!

Looks like we'll be getting 15-20 cm tonight till tomorrow morning, and they say the white stuff will stay until spring.
