I drove around Orange this morning to the few birding spots I like- several less common birds as well as lots of Canada Geese. 8:40am Old Tavern Rd baseball field pond- 5 Mallards (3 male, 2 female), 1 Red shouldered hawk perched in a tree, 2 female Hooded Mergansers, 2 American Crows, 4 Mourning doves, 252 Canada Geese.
9am-Indian Lake 43 mallards, 1 Pied billed Grebe diving, 2 Blue Jays.
9:20 Wright's Pond-empty, but Cornfield across street had about 380 Canada Geese. 2 Geese had yellow neck bands HO15 and HO16. I entered a report about them online. I didn't notice any of the geese that looked smaller, smaller bills etc.
