These are a collection of bird, butterfly and dragonfly photos.  We hope you enjoy them.    Trips have been mostly in the United States, with the trip of a lifetime being Alaska . . . we did see the Ruff in Breeding plumage, and traveled to Barrow, within the Arctic Circle, to see a spectacular pair in courtship.   In the summer of 2011, we enjoyed a trip to Nova Scotia, and a trip to the Dry Tortugas in the summer of  2012.  And I would be remiss if I did not mention that  Arizona is one of our favorite birding hotspots.

Cackling or Richardson's Geese at Finfeather Lake, 11-28-11 Looking up Wigeon size, 20 inch, these appear to be not much larger. Size of Cackling, 25 inches and Richardson's is 27 inches. Head shape according to Sibley should be flatter for Richardson's and rounder for Cackling. What do you think?
