3.0 mile(s)
Comments: Brian O'Neill and I birded this area partly in search of a cackling goose reported here 2 or 3 days ago by Ava Steenstrup. No dice. We had to settle for 560+ Canada geese with no strangers among them. Miles are 2 by car and 1 on foot, as we eventually walked the interior of Maplecroft Farm to check the geese too far from the roads to see. Birding was poor all around--no gulls, only 3 sparrows, and no blackbirds!
