Pictures of two Greater White-fronted Geese taken at Colyer Lake near State College, PA in Centre County on 3/13/2004 at about 9:00 AM. The geese were found by Molly Heath of State College on Friday, 3/12/2004. They were about 200 feet away from the scope that I used to take the pictures. The scope is a Swarovski ST80HD with a 20-60x zoom lens and the pictures were taken at 60x by holding a compact digital Minolta Dimage X up to the lens. The sky was clear, temperature about 32F, with a moderate wind. The two geese were among a small flock of Canada Geese sitting on ice.
