Barnacle Goose in Somerset County, Dec. 25, 2014

This afternoon, Sam Galick found a Barnacle Goose at Duke Island Park, Bridgewater Twp. This is the first record of Barnacle Goose for Somerset County.

A Greater White-fronted Goose was also present with 800 Canada Geese. The geese eventually flew towards the southwest which is in the direction of a typical goose roost in the Studdiford Drive/River Road area along the South Branch of the Raritan River in Branchburg and Hillsborough Townships.

Congratulations, Sam, and a Merry Christmas indeed!
