On Saturday, January 26, Al Hooks, Peggy Eubank and I visited Pocosin Lakes NWR, by way of the Ocracoke to Swan Quarter ferry. Had dozens of Brant, from Hatteras to Ocracoke and good numbers of scoters and other diving ducks.
At Pocosin Lakes NWR, we had 3 Sandhill Cranes and 4 Ross's Geese, all flyovers. We also observed an all white goose that I thought was a leucistic or albino Snow Goose at the time, but after looking at the photos, the bill is wrong for Snow Goose. Opinions on this bird would be welcome.
