Re: Bird ID Help?

Speaking of Canada Geese (assuming I'm using the correct collective noun - I thought the Mac dictionary at bit ambiguous in that respect, suggesting a Geese is a bird as apposed to more than one of them ), there seems to be a family of them living at that spot. I shall be returning with a longer lens.
