7/20 - Spring Lake, Sherman - 3 Swan Geese amongst flock of Canadas.  These are from China, domestic and undoubtedly released or escaped, handsome birds and curious looking with a large black knob at the base of the bill like a Mute Swan cob.  One is shown in the Sibley Guide on page 89, however the drawing does not show the prominent black knob.  They have apparently been on the pond for a couple of weeks. Easily seen from Spring Lake Road (off route 39 North).
