Impostors?/ Camera Critters

White-fronted geese or impostors?

These could be white-fronted geese,  winter visitors from Greenland ... but more likely they are domestic escapees.

Snacking

As you can see, someone has left a few treats here.

Saw the photo and thought I know these, pink footed geese, but I was wrong. Nicely caught!

Beautiful birds. The first picture almost looks like a painting. It would be very pretty framed and in someone's country kitchen.

VioletSky said...

These are a refreshing change form the usual ones we see! Are the brown billed ones juveniles, or females, do you think?

I was just reading about White fronted Geese and if you ever see any well you really didn't so the article said. So I suppose these are farmer's geese living the wild life now. Nice shots EG. MB

SquirrelQueen said...

They are really cute whatever they might be. Great shots!

No idea what they are, but they are beautiful photos. I especially like how the three geese are lined up in the first one!
