i went to that area trying to refind the Shrike from Sunday. No success with that, but a big area - it could still be around.
The geese use Creekview Pond as a roosting spot. So if the Cackling isnt there, try again at a different time. Small bodied, short neck, tiny stubby bill. Be careful as some Canadas in there with shorter bills. Not the stubby of a Cackler though.
Ebird notes - you can download your data anytime for archiving. I do once a month. Although I consider ebird very safe. Better than my home computer.
Camera thoughts - my trusty Sony Cybershot - the IS broke while I was away. I need a new camera. I want something similar. Not those big massive lenses most of you seem to carry! Thoughts? I'll get something new over the holidays.
