Canada geese - those are the most common ones, followed by Egyptian geese.

More geese from the fall...

I spent a lot of time this fall going after landing shots. Everyone knows we always talk about the perfect light and the right angle to achieve that. Something just as important when trying to capture geese or ducks landing is wind direction. When given the chance most bird species, especially larger ones, will land into the wind. This is even the case in the slightest of breezes so always keep this in mind when positioning yourself for these pics. For me to capture these landings from the right angle for both light and landing direction on any given day I only had about a 2 hour window and the wind needed to be blowing anywhere between the SE to the SW otherwise I would have been shooting a lot of bird butts.

So next time you check out the weather forecast for your area before heading out on a photography outing take into account the wind direction as well as the wind speed. Not only for birds but all wildlife as well. A strong wind may keep some birds grounded but it will allow you to approach other animals, from a downwind direction, and get much closer than on a day with no wind at all. Strong winds that russle leaves makes the sound of your footsteps a bit more muffled to hear thus allowing, at times, a slightly closer approach.

you guessed it.. a few more geese... good news is Im just about caught up on my pic processing... bad news.. took a drive into town today and although we have a bit of snow in the yard but still lots of areas without snow town has no snow at all. Looks like it will be a brown holiday. Never seen that up here before.

Image

definately one of my better goose pics to date...

these were the last geese and duck of the fall for me...

Image

for years I have been trying to capture a goose landing on ice, loosing its balance and wiping out... this is the closest I've gotten to date but still not as extreme a crash as I would like to capture...

Image

Image

Last duck of the year...

I've been shooting a lot of other birds, but neglecting the ducks a bit - a reminder I need to start photographing them more since some of you northerners don't have many!

I don`t usually bother with shooting ducks, they are pretty common here, but went for a walk with the 4 year old in a nearby nature reserve earlier and came across a few.

bit annoyed that I missed the feet in the first one, was to busy trying to get the pair in, I didn`t even notice that I missed the feet.
They must be some escaped domestic geese that have settled into the local water hole. Certainly not native.

OK - not ducks, but they cruise around in the water like ducks - and I thought this little 'Fight Club' sequence between these two American coots was interesting:

Those coots get pretty vicious with each other, I saw them fighting in my local pond last year and those long claws can cause lots of damage.

Here's a Bufflehead.
