1/25/13  Westport  Longshore Golf Park - Cackling Goose

3 pm -  At the end of the entry straightaway, on the right hand side are two small ponds.  Yesterday a large flock of Canada Geese were there with a slightly smaller individual.  This bird had a noticeably smaller bill and a breast much the same color of the Canadas just a half shade darker.  I looked at photos of Cackling Goose on natureinstruct/dendroica, and there is a very good representation of this bird on the left side of photo #2.
