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!


  1. Always a nice sighting!
    As usual, the mild weather brings them in this time of year!

  2. Yup! Great to see them again after the cold we have been having!
