Thanks to you both. Another lifer for me. 3 in the last week. Doesn’t get better than that.

There were over 100 Canada Geese there and while scanning them with my scope and counting them I came across the Great White Fronted goose that I have seen here a few days ago and a small goose that really caught my eye. So much so, that I snapped several pics. I have never seen a Cackling Goose, so I am not positive of the ID, but I am pretty sure. Much smaller size than the Canadas, smaller bill and head and a rounded head compared to the Canadas. I posted my pics of both birds on my checklist. I would appreciate it if better birders than I could confirm my ID of the Cackling. If its not, I’ll change the checklist.
