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.
Excellent.Also thanks for the advice with Blogger.
Great photos! It's funny you should mention how you found a way around the posting problems. I stumbled on that same way of doing it when I posted the Geese photo today. I had gone out of blogger, over to Picasa, uploaded the photo to it, went back to my Blog, and just on a whim I clicked on "New Post" at the top, then picture icon, and it worked! Wonders never cease.
You visited a quite interesting place I've to say. beautiful pictures again with this nice water colors. interesting this dark-phase snow goose, i did not know about it!
Excellent pictures and explanation... thank you of the blogger info as well.
Nice crisp picture.
Coy, I have enjoyed your photos from Middle Creek. I always enjoy my trip there, with the beautiful weather this weekend and a four day break I think it would be a good trip for me along with Wildwood Lake.
Like you I shoot the birds in the spring and enjoy it but I miss photographing the big game.
Enjoy the warm weather, Brad
Nice angles indeed, Coy!
Its always a pleasure visiting your blog and seeing wildlife through your eyes. We have geese that fly over our house all the time on their way to who knows where but I have never seen the beautiful Snow goose. Thanks for the pictures.
What a treat to see this dark-phased Snow Goose. They are such lovely creatures and the darker one, makes them even more special~
