For us, this species has been strictly a spring and fall migrant, noted from the property as they fly overhead, calling. Our records here span the 1-24 of April and then again in the fall from the 26 Sept-18 Oct. This photo is of just a part of a flock of 682 that passed overhead on Sunday; and just one of 3 flocks I saw that day for a total estimated in excess of 1500 birds. Greater White-fronted Geese (Anser albifrons), like many geese and swans, are increasing in numbers, so it is not surprising that this is the highest number recorded at Leaning Oaks
