I ended up spending 3 and 1/2 days in the helicopter surveying Canada geese this season.  I’m entering data for that now and that information will be used to estimate KY goose populations.  I managed to shoot a few more pictures along the way.  I haven’t had much chance to really look at the images, but these are a few which caught my eye.
