Hi all - I rushed up to Milavec Reservoir when I heard about the Barnacle Goose. Indeed, he was still there. He flew out around 3 only to return a few minutes later. Yes, the Pink-footed was present, as well as all five regular geese, and some hybrids.

Nearby the Barnacle Goose was a very dark Cackling Goose, with a bronze-colored chest. It was the size of the small Richardson's Cackling Geese. Here is a photo, would this fit the criteria for the Pacific Subspecies?
