Geese and Goldfinch

These geese were captured by my trail cam. It is activated by movement.

The first picture shows Canada Geese. These are visitors , although we do have a small group of Canada Geese who live in our neighborhood year-round.

The white geese are descended from farm geese. They visit my yard every day. They are not strong fliers like the Canada Geese.
I took the goldfinch pictures using my aging Nikon camera. It has a zoom lens so I keep it near the back door for taking pictures of birds.
