Subject: Ohio River birding this morning
Mike Griffith and I went is search of the Cackling Geese reported yesterday
at Krodel Park in Pt. Pleasant, Mason County, to no avail.

Birds of note include:
4 American Black Ducks on the Ohio River seen at the fish hatchery

1 Snow Goose seen through a spotting scope among 300-400 Canada geese on
the second island in the the Ohio River across from the hatchery. We are
98% sure that it was a Snow Goose rather than a Ross's Goose.

1 pair of Ruddy Ducks at the sandpit at Gallipolis Ferry.
