Barrington, Illinois — Crabtree Nature Center

I was sitting in the blind on Crabtree Lake watching the ducks and geese when I heard the Snow Goose calling.  I spotted it as it glided down into the small area of open water in front of the blind.  It swam around among the ducks. A few weeks later, four blue-phase Snow Geese were sitting on the ice on Crabtree Lake.
