I have a vague recollection of seeing a large but somewhat blurry flock of pink geese, but that may have been following an exposure to Wild Turkey, Grey Goose, and Old Crow. Not sure what it would take to induce an entire flock of Barnacle Geese, or if they'd be countable under those circumstances.

Word gets around in the birding world, so I was amused when my parents, wintering at Port Aransas TX, reported meeting some birders who had recently spent time in Colorado and talked about seeing "several" Pink-footed Geese and "hundreds" of Barnacle Geese. As far as I can tell, the discussions on this list have been talking about repeated sightings of one of each species. So I am curious if anyone has seen larger numbers of either goose, or if these sightings got magnified in the re-telling. There are lies, damn lies, and bird lists....
