I had a day tour in BC last week, which was highlighted by some nice bird activity. Something new for me was witnessing Canada goose courtship. The geese take turns dipping their heads in the water and splashing around, to show each other they're ready to mate. There was a lot of this going on, in addition to some aggressive territorial battles.

I wrote about the goose display here. A few preview images are below.

Nice stuff, you got some really good shots. They are quite territorial. I have a few that visit my back yard daily for the cracked corn buffet. It's like Tom and Jerry out there with them chasing one another around! They're downright mean.
