Bird of pray

Whilst looking through some of the photographs that I had taken of birds during the Summer, I came across this one – a goose in reflective mood – looks like this goose could be praying, perhaps.

Bird of pray - Emperor Goose in  reflective moodEmperor Goose

These geese are not as gregarious as most geese which may account for this particular pose. Its breeding grounds are in Alaska around the Bering Sea and in Russia in the area of Kamchatka. They spend the Winter period over an area of around three hundred small islands many of which are volcanic. These small islands are scattered from the Peninsula of Kamchatka left to the Peninsula of Alaska and are called the Aleutian Islands.

I need to learn to be more careful when I'm reading. I read that as bird of "prey" not "pray" so I was surprised when I started reading about a goose.
