Lifer #200 for NB! Greater White-fronted Goose

Thanks for a tip for a friend who is a hunter (it is duck season!), I got to see my first Greater White-fronted Goose last week and #200 for NB. It was with a flock of thirty or so Canada's in the Saint John River. I watched it for ten minutes or so with my scope, but couldn't get the greatest picture as it was quite far out. He was telling me how it was easy to spot in flight and to hear it among the Canada Geese. Hopefully someday I'll get to experience the same thing and find one on my own. I played with the photo a bit so that its orange bill and the size difference would stand out more.
