I visited the masses of snow geese this week. There were probably close to 25,000 in a single sandpit lake. It was hard for me to get a good perspective of the group with the 400mm lens because every picture is just a small portion of how many were really there.
See if you can count all the birds in this photo... And let me know.. :P
I drove south of the river and saw a few Cranes. I think the recent snow storm and cold temps have kept a lot of them south longer.
Some sort of migratory ducks I think.
Some Mallard ducks. I think I know what they look like at least.
And more ducks.
Sort of artistic maybe?
The mass of snow geese from a distance. They all started heading east for some reason. Maybe to further clog the lakes around Grand Island.
"N" stands for Nebraska! If it doesn't look like an N to you your looking at it the wrong way.
Below are a few pics from a trip I took a couple weeks ago.
