Here are some newcomers that I spotted near the pond a couple of weeks ago. I can't remember ever seeing these geese locally before. There were other people watching these geese too, because I had a camera they must have thought I was an expert and asked if they were young Snow Geese. I didn't think so but said I was going to consult my bird book when I got home.
The closest match in my Field Guide to North American Birds was a white fronted Goose, but I thought they looked like birds I had seen before in England. After trolling the Internet I think they are Greylag Geese.
Here is a picture from Wikipedia:
Here is a link to what Wiki has to say about them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greylag_Goose
Apparently in North America there are both domestic and feral population of these geese.
This one was looking at me curiously, or maybe it is just the lookout.
I only saw them once, unfortunately here they are rushing away here because they spotted an approaching dog.
The parent were keeping a close eye so I didn't get too close. There were six little ones.
