> I am definitively stating I saw the Pink-footed Goose today and took one lousy photo. When I first saw it, it was sleeping with its head hidden I knew I was on either a Greater White-fronted Goose or the Pink-footed Goose.  Either way I sent a letter to the list at 12:26 saying the bird looked good. I had two good looks at its head and neck when it was briefly raised after I sent that letter then my cell started going crazy, I was trying to get a better angle through the brush on a drifting bird and keep tabs on it while answering emails and phone calls. Then the shotgun went off.   I sent two more letters at 12:41 and 12:58 titled - Moving Geese -  describing what was happening where I was  in an effort to alert birders for these new airborne flocks. 
> I hope the letter above explains why I didn't definitively post my sighting. A definitive statement with photo included will be written to the ARCC.
