I had two on the camera though, but after coming home and seeing them on the computer and comparing them with the guide, I think I got them settled. Now it is just a couple water birds. We were floored to find water as we've been below freezing for awhile now. But the state park has a hot spring that feeds into the lake and there is some sort of pump that keeps the water moving.

In the first picture, the one is a Greater White-fronted goose and the other two seem similar, but their bills are darker. The two guides I look at did not mention that the younger ones might have darker bills. In all other ways, they seem Greater White-fronted, so I just want to make sure they are not something else.

In the second picture, is that a Common Goldeneye with the Mallard?

Thank you for your help and Happy New Year!
