I took a walk around the Waltham St. Fields for snipe yesterday. Or at least I started to, halfway around I bumped into these guys and couldn’t check the rest of the fields:
Two young Greater White-fronted Geese!
Sun was pretty bad there but note pinkish bills.
I ran home to post them and then returned to show my parents. Scoping from the street they looked more orange-billed (not that the bills show here):
Marj soon showed up and we reentered the fields and were able to get fairly close. Bill color looks a bit pinker again but the right one is still quite orange. Also note how little (if any) white there is on that one, seems rather late to be so limited.
