Meet the Canadians.

It has been confirmed. The birds in yesterday's post are not Canadian Geese. For my penance, I had to wake up very early today and walk around Stanley Park in Vancouver for a bird lesson. Canadian Geese have black markings. The birds in this photo are Canadian Geese. There is absolutely no hygiene lesson in today's post. Unless of course you are tempted to drink untreated bird bath water. Don't. You may be delighted to hear I was able to identify a Loon and a Mallard. Loon's are also black-throated just like Canadian Geese. Just much smaller. Either way, the white birds pictured yesterday were far more concerned with personal hygiene.

  1. I think there is definitely a hygiene moral to this story and that is: stay out of of Hawrelak Park (Edmonton) because there are too many Canadian Geese in there and they leave a mess.
