In February we learned of the migrating Snow Geese at Fort Boise Wildlife Management Area near Parma. This photo is taken from a tower across the road from the preserve where the geese are resting on their flight north.
Zooming in on the area of what looks like styrofoam, we can see the actual geese.
Zooming in further affords a better view. One Mallard is in their midst.
Driving home, we came across a flock of 200 or so Greater White-fronted Geese. This was a new species for us.
