One of the more interesting birds we encountered during our Middle Creek visit was a dark phase snow goose. Once considered a separate species of goose and named the Blue Goose it is now recognized as a dark phase snow goose.
The pothole that contained the Northern Shovelers posted earlier also had a few normal white snow geese and this one dark phase feeding in it. Fortunately the restrictions at this pothole allowed visitors to walk to the edge of the water giving me the opportunity for reasonable close shooting with the 100-4000mm lens.
Like many of you I have been experiencing problems posting pictures with the new blogger post editor. I discovered that when entering “new post” from the dashboard that I am unable to upload photo directly to blogger. However if after logging into blogger, returning to my blog and then clicking “new post” at the top I get a post editor that works just fine. I’m sure this is just a bug that the good folks at blogger will fix soon but in the meantime I hope you all find this helpful.
