Today at Otter Creek Marsh I spent much time and effort scoping Snow Geese for a dark morph Ross's Goose. It was like looking for a needle in a haystack except that haystacks don't move away from you to the farthest corner of the marsh nor does a haystack constantly rearrange the straw while your looking. So I found the task demanding but there were times when the geese were within range (60X), the light was good and eagles absent. Maybe the dark morph isn't as rare as I think and it's just scoping one that is the difficult part.
