Greater White-fronted Geese - 29 Nov 2013

With thanks to Scott Jennex for finding these birds, I was able to relocate 15 Greater White-fronted Geese this morning in one of the sewage lagoons in Morencie, MI (Lenawee Co.).  They were among another 200 or so Canada Geese on the iced-over ponds in the NW corner of the town along Sims Hwy.

I tried digiscoping the birds from about 250' away through the fence surrounding the lagoon, but they were severely side-lit. I walked around to the south end of the lagoon where I could see the birds if I stood on tip-toes, but they were too far away to photograph, so I settled for the images I took from Sims Hwy, which separated the two lagoons.
