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!
