In addition to what Bob Fisher wrote: 
    I usually detect Greater White-fronted Geese flying overhead by their distinctive call which is quite different than the Canada Geese or Snow Geese.  Also a Ross's Goose may be picked out from a flock of flying Snows by its much smaller size.  (The Ross's are usually toward the rear of a line of Snows).

  Today must be the day to look up: we continue to see large flocks of migratory birds overhead. They are a good distance up and unidentifiable to me. However, do others of you have experience in being able to ID birds when in this situation - or is it a time to just be in awe  of the event? The flocks vary in their coloring, flight habits, etc but didn't know if ID was suppose to be possible. Thanks!
