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.
