Nov 23, 2013: Greater White-fronted Goose

Greater White-fronted Goose.  11/14/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

This immature (lack of speckling on belly & little white behind bill) Greater White-fronted Goose was found amongst some Canada Geese by the mini-shelter at the NE corner of the north lake.

The numbers of Canada Geese on the south lake have finally increased.  At least 500 were present today, along with over 1000 Mallards, a handful of Cackling Geese, 1♂ Northern Pintail, 1♀ Ring-necked Duck, 1♂ Common Goldeneye, 2♀ Common Mergansers, and 2♀ Ruddy Ducks.  The season's first Northern Shrike was found just west of the main shelter.
