Greater White-fronted Geese

With some warmer temps in southern Indiana over the last few days some of the waterfowl returned. There is quite a bit of open water on Lake Monroe now and with the next week of warm temps the ice should decrease and the waterfowl diversity should increase. Over the weekend 12 Greater White-fronted Geese arrived on Monroe. These were my first white-fronts for Monroe County. Some other noteworth species were Horned Grebe and Greater Scaup along with many Common Mergansers and Common Goldeneyes.
