We found 5 Greater White-fronted Geese resting on the remaining ice in the north portion of Lake Artemesia (PG County) this afternoon. The south pond had 1 Cackling Goose mixed in with all the Canada Geese and 1 domestic goose. There's no way I would have found the Cackling if the sighting hadn't been posted earlier on here (thanks!). Digiscoped pics sufficient for ID (and not much else!) are posted on eBird: follow the link below the full checklist.
