Regarding the possible Snow Goose at Hammo, Nick asked if the  bird I saw 
could possibly have been a white pelican.  The bird was flying  away from me, 
and aside from the obvious differences in size of the bills  (which I did 
not see),   a white pelican could be a possibility.   Nick explained that 
Snow geese are usually in flocks and a white pelican could  be flying solo.
Initially the size of the bird  reminded me of a  swan, but the primaries 
thick and black.
So if any other observers see this bird down the coast  and get a longer, 
better look ,I hope they post it.
