A text from my parents this afternoon alerting me to a Snow Goose wasn't enough to pull me away from the football games but the call about a Barnacle Goose got me out the door real quick. Once again for the 3rd straight year the Wallingford area hosted a Barnacle Goose for at least a day. Like two years ago this Goose was observed at Mackenzie Reservoir in Wallingford. While watching the Barnacle with my Father (the one who spotted it) we found a Greater White-fronted and a Cackling Goose. 
The Snow Goose that my Dad also found was at the pond along Rt 68 down the street from Greenbacker Pond. 
A few pictures of the Barnacle & Cackling can be viewed here. Nothing great but nice record shots.http://www.flickr.com/photos/whitewash88/
