The VNC "Wild Goose Chase" (26 JAN 13)

 

Ross' (far left) and Snow Geese, along FM 1015

Part of the mob...

Greater White-fronted Geese

A couple of White Pelicans join in the fun (with a Greater White-fronted Goose in the middle)

Two blue morph Snow Geese, although the bottom bird is more halfway between the two...

Distant Sandhill Cranes 

   

Roseate Spoonbills in a little pond to the east of Delta Lake; notice how the water bands are reflecting off the birds on the right!

More geese fly overhead (top to bottom:  young Whitefront, Blue, Snow, and adult Whitefront)

 

A Belted Kingfisher in bad light looked a little on the greenish side at first!

One of many White-tailed Hawks hanging around the burned cane fields

   

This Sprague's Pipit was a life bird for several in the group!

   

Comedy relief was provided when someone announced over the walkie-talkies that a Vermilion Flycatcher was sitting on the chicken head!

Part of the crew gazing out over the eastern part of Delta Lake

You have to be careful crossing the street, though!
