Great feather detail on the first. I thought when I first saw it, it was a goose. Definately not a birder.

Yes, the first shot is not bad at all - even for a rear view :-)

However, these are not ducks. The first is of a Canda Goose and the second is a swan...

Hello there;

To be more specific, it's the south-most end of a north-bound Canada Goose. :-)I'm sure you've heard the expression "as loose as a goose" It's true; not a good place to be. Could be worse, It could be the south end of a Canada moose!

Sorry about the bad puns.

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Tom - my dog loves the idea of "loose as a goose"! :-) I just can't understand why he thinks that that stuff is so tasty...

Oh, and one correction - at this time of year that is either a southbound or resident goose, but surely not a northbound goose. :blah:

Thanks all for your compliments.

Yeah, I know they're assorted avian types all swimming together in that pond. I just lump 'em all together in the category of duck. While I realized the second is a swan (obviously) I was not sure about the first, but I suspected. Thanks for clarifying.

Great shot of the Canada Goose. I like those from the back poses when they turn their heads sideways, checking out the guy scrambling about behind.
