Greater White-fronted and Cackling Geese; No Ross’s Goose reports, Jan. 17, 2013

From Marc Chelemer:

Today, January 17th, between 12 Noon and 1:15 PM, I visited both the western end of Lord Stirling Road and the Lyons Vets Admin Hospital on Knollcroft, north of Valley Road. The Greater White-fronted Goose was on the eastern side of Knollcroft Road at the Lyons VA location. No Ross’s Goose was visible at either location. Other birders I met at Lyons, who had been to Lord Stirling, had also NOT seen the Ross’s.

Jeff Ellerbusch found 2 Cackling Geese at the equestrian fields on Lord Stirling Road this afternoon at approximately 3:00 p.m.

From Jeff:
“Cackling Geese are much more noteworthy up here than mid and lower Somerset. As usual with feeding Cackling, these two hardly ever raised there heads for more than two seconds.”
