I clicked these photos yesterday in Central Saanich and counted 5 of these beautiful Canada Geese subspecies with red neck bands and leg bands. They winter in Oregon and return each spring to the Copper River delta in South Central Alaska and Prince William Sound. They are known as one of the smallest subspecies of goose populations in North America! Strikingly beautiful chocolate brown birds that tend to stop off on the Peninsula in Fall and Spring.
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
