Pink-footed Goose not found; Greater White-fronted Goose in Lyons, Feb. 26, 2013

Although searched for late into the afternoon, the Pink-footed Goose of Florham Park was not found or reported today.
From Jennifer Books:
Today, I went out to the Florham Park location where the Pink-footed Goose was recently spotted, and unfortunately I could not find it. Instead I saw a large flock of Canada Geese, about 15 Ring-necked Ducks, and 2 Killdeer. This was around 10:30 this morning. Wish I could have better news. The ducks were nice to see though.

I decided to check out both the equestrian field at Lord Stirling Stables and the VA hospital in Lyons this afternoon in the hopes of finding at least the Greater White-Fronted Goose again. This time I had more luck for a change. The equestrian field just had Canada Geese in it, but the the VA hospital yielded the Greater White-fronted Goose once again. He or she was best viewed from the main road that runs through the center of the VA hospital, near the entrance that’s on the road that leads to Pleasant Valley Park (sorry, can’t remember the name). While there I scanned several other large flocks of geese at various locations but only saw a lone Killdeer near the golfer’s parking lot. This was around 3 p.m.
