if you had titled the photo a blizzard of snow geese it would be appropriate to the entry requirements and I personally would have scored you much higher

On That's an Appropriate Nickname! #2 challenge (5 comments in total)

Most of the entrants here are from the US as evident by their subject matter a killdeer for example is not doing that.

Various other entries clearly have not read the info properly.

If you were British you would have included the crown above, it would then resemble the Queen's head on our stamps.

On black terns in the Animal Migration challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

Beppone: Hi there!

Nice shot and I really love these birds.

The Picture itself is a bit unsharp and shows lots of CAs.

BUT: The shown birds are no black terns.
You shot a nice flock of SANDWICH TERNS (Sterna sandvicensis).

Bep

There was the odd sandwich tern with them, and some within the much larger flock still had dark breasts but the majority were winter plumage black terns in my opinion, no white tip to the bill and when scrutinised with my telescope and visible were three pronged black cap, grey shoulder and outer primary patches, plus the grey outer edges to underwing as opposed to clean of the sandwich
