These shots, all taken about three weeks ago, show the three different Geese that Winter in Brooklyn. Some Canada Geese live here all year.

The little Brandt, is not much bigger than a large duck

And my favorite, the Snow goose, although these images don't do them justice.

Awesome pics. I absolutely love goose pics. The first pics of the brants are great, we dont get any of those around here(ND). Im almost positive that the last pics are of a domestic or farm raised goose. Snow geese have black wing tips.

You'd be wrong about the Snow Geese...:lol:

Snow Geese DO have black wingtips, but they are only visible when the wings are spread.

You'd be wrong, the black tips are highly visable when they are sitting. It is one of there main characteristics. Also snow geese dont have orange beaks OR orange legs. Thesnow's legs are lighter pinkish sometimes they can get to a darker pink but I have only seen a few. Their beaks are also a lighter pink with what they call a "grinning patch". Their beaks have a black patch around the edge of it which makes it look like they are grinning.

I hope you havent been shooting any of those pets:-)

I ate both of them thanks to your post. I'm also going to have to cut down on the booze...:?:

How embarrasing...:shock:
