Subject: Mason Co. Birding - Cackling Geese
Janet Keating and I found 5 Cackling Geese with a large flock of Canada Geese in a pasture-field south of Point Pleasant (just downstream from the Silver Memorial Bridge). A few other birds found :

Gallipolis Ferry :
Greater White-fronted Goose - 22
Common Goldeneye - 12
The sand pit pond is frozen except for one small patch of open water.

R.C. Byrd Locks :
Bufflehead - 7
Long-tailed Duck - 1
Common Merganser - 1
Most of the birds here were obscured by heavy fog coming from the "warm" river. The air temperature was -1.
