Brent Geese must be one of the most handsome geese. Fluctuations are interesting, especially extreme northerly breeding birds where there aren't so many people to report what is going on with breeding success or failure.
I did see a huge flock of them heading south last winter, maybe they just got tired of Hakodate................
Slaty-backed Gulls show up in southern Ontario as very rare vagrants. It is so infrequent that I think most people have a hard time separating them from Herring Gulls - me included!
Hi David. American Herring Gulls are vagrants here and I'm not sure if I could identify one either!
That's a lot of grebes!
There do seem to be a lot this winter........
