> 1/20/16 1000 - Ross's Goose is sleeping close to shore Broad Brook Millpond off parking lot, 3 Greater White-fronted Geese also present. No sign of Pink-footed, could easily be mixed in with the huge concentration of Canada's that are crowded together and mostly sleeping. So far few geese have taken off to feed.

> Tom,At Broad Brook Pond, and at Frog Hollow Rd (Ellington) cornfield where the geese feed, there have been 1 Pink-footed, up to 4 Greater White-fronted, 1 Ross's, 1 Cackling, and 6000+ Canadas.From your description ("white patch around the orange bill"), it sounds like you saw a Greater White-fronted.
