Hi all,

Among some 900 migrant Canada Geese on Mackenzie Reservoir in
Wallingford late this morning was a hybrid Barnacle Goose x
'white-cheeked' goose, likely Canada. I will post some photos later.

Also present on the res was the continuing "Richardson's" Cackling
Goose (not at all associating with the Barnacle hybrid).

It is a very interesting flock, recalling last October's flock, that
includes several rather small-billed Canada Geese.
