Just a follow up on the Gerking Mkt Rd Snow Goose. Mike Golden contacted me to tell me the bird has been there for weeks if not months. I somehow missed this during my November raptor survey.
More interestingly to me, I photographed the Snow Goose and while cropping the photo for inclusion on eBird I noticed that the Canada Goose next to it had a neck collar/band. That was a fun surprise.

Mark, That snow goose has been on Gerking Market Rd for over two months now off and on. Never seen a Canvasback on that pond though. Mike Golden On Dec 29, 2017, at 6:00 PM, M Gonzalez <towhee...> wrote:
