This morning I headed to the Black Dirt Region again to try for some of the species I’ve missed. Still missing. I did find tremendous numbers of geese, at 3000 on Onion Avenue. As I pulled up along the field and rolled down my window, I immediately heard a CACKLING GOOSE calling. This is a high pitched nasally honk nothing like a Canada Goose. I looked up the road from where it was coming and the bird was along the road only fifty feet from the edge. I pulled up and the geese didn’t flush. The bird continued to vocalize, something I never tire of hearing. As I took pictures of it, I realized that only thirty feet away was the GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE! They eventually came together and it was neat to see them side by side momentarily. I searched and searched, but found not other unusual geese. I texted a few people, and Linda Scrima responded and got to see the birds. From there, I went around the region, but really found nothing else of note. Returning to Sullivan, I stopped by the Bashakill and found my first MUTE SWAN of the year in the county.
