I drive past that field every workday at about 4:10 pm. I've been seeing at
least one snow Goose(sometimes two) there off an on since early December. I
don't always stop and glass the field over. I did see Geese there today, but
they were way back in the field and it was snowing.

>From Jamie Meyers: 
1/21 -- Simsbury, cornfield across from the Weatogue Fire Station -- 2 SNOW
GEESE present around 3 PM. 

It is quite conceivable one of them was Sara's goose from this morning. This
location has held at least one Snow in December but I don't think any have
been there in the last week or so. We have been speculating as to where the
bird that was reported several times by Doug Beach may have gone. The
weekend saw a couple of local birders scour all of the usual goose spots in
the area -- including Res 6 and this field -- without success, though there
were numerous Canadas to be found. So where did these guys come from, and
are they the same ones that have been around from time to time? I'd love to
have a better picture of their comings and going because like many geese,
they sure ain't predictable.
