All of the different geese landed on Walnut Canyon Pond after sunset this evening, so tomorrow morning might be another good opportunity to see them together. Preferably using your car window scope mount with the heat on ?

On Thursday 22 December 2016 I checked the geese at about 0800h MST. There were, as noted above and evident in the photo, two Ross's Geese and 5 Snow Geese. The White-fronted Geese were present as well as the Cackling Goose...which may be minima? Also present was at least one apparent parvipes Canada Goose.

I took this photo of what I am fairly sure is the Cackling Goose this evening. Sibley's online guide to Cackling and Canada Geese subspecies says "B. h. minima has long wings that appear to be pushed forward in flight..." Do you suppose this photo is consistent with that description?
