I had a flock of Canada Geese on Dryden Lake this morning, sitting on a bare patch of black ice that looked very much like open water. In with them were 10 Blue Snow Geese and a single CACKLING GOOSE. I don't often see that many Blue Geese without any white Snows.
While I was there 3 Redheads flew in, circled, and made a low pass by the patch before heading back up into the sky. Apparently they thought it looked like open water too.
