Default Juvenile Greater White-fronted Goose

The ducks and geese are starting to arrive in numbers here in northern California. Here is a very young White-fronted goose. Hunters refer to them as specs or speckle-bellies. You can tell this one is a juvenile because of the lack black bands on it's breast. The lower picture is an adult for comparison.

These are beautiful shots.

They remind me of this PBS series I just saw, called "Earthflight." I missed the first two episodes, but they are going to rebroadcast them next month (at least in Chicago).
