Alan Boyd found a Ross’s Goose Monday, February 18 in a roadside pond near the Valley Brook Country Day School, East Valley Brook Road in Long Valley (Washington Twp.), Morris County. A number of other observers were able to see the goose during the afternoon.
Ross’s Goose is a mega-rarity in Morris County with no previous well-documented records.
The Ross’s Goose was floating with hundreds of Canada Geese.
Rob Fanning reports the Ross’s Goose continues this morning, Tuesday, February 19. Parking is restricted to the shoulder next to the pond. Use care if you go to view it as Valley Brook Road is surprisingly busy.
