The second bird is a dark morph ferruginous hawk. A really cool bird to see, biggest of hawks. Seeing in person close to the size of a eagle.

Someone that knows more about geese than I. Are these all the same species or are the dark and multi colored ones a different species?

The sharpness and color quality on these are amazing.

What kind of camera set-up are you using??

Nice clicks!

Really cool pics. Thanks for sharing.

Great pics John, that bison is especially striking.

All those geese are the same species (snow geese) just different color phases, snow vs blue. The grayish/dusky ones are immature blue phase. I've heard that the blue phase geese don't get the stark white heads until they are fully mature.

The gray ones are white fronted geese. Saw this half rack in the Adirondacks today.

tkjwonta is correct, I believe. Snows and blues.

Some great pics, John! Especially like the bison.

Thanks guys. Camera is a Canon 90D. Lens for these was a Sigma 150-600mm Sport.

Paul I tried to get them up. Took a few pics from truck. Then got out on county road hoping they would fly. They didn’t not. I didn’t not know who’s land it was so did want to get off road and piss off land owner.

Love the pics John. Bison is a fave. Ya geese are snows/blues. Count for the same limit. Blues are a dark morph of the snows. Man that one mulie looks scruffy.

Great photos as always!

I saw a mature bald eagle two days ago eating a road killed deer. The deer was about 30 feet from the road in an open field. If I would have stopped to take a picture he'd have flown so I just kept going. That was one big bird.

Jeff that was about a month ago but basically same story as yours a little further than 30 feet from road. I stopped he didn't fly but I was probably 75-100 yards from him.

I took a little drive today along the Poudre river here in Greeley never left the city limits. Saw 6 bald eagles including this guy - I think he is cross eyed!

Nice pics John. I’ll bet that old scraggly, split eared muley could tell some tales.
