Speckle Bellies!

Today I was in Niagara for some field work with Dan Riley and stopped by Thorold to see the reported Great White-fronted Geese, affectionately known as "speckle bellies" for the black markings on their underparts.

We managed to track down 3 of the birds, but they were a bit far for good shots.  It was nice to meet Ryan Griffiths while looking for these birds!

They seem to be popping up around Ontario so keep an eye out!
