The white-fronted goose was present this morning  - viewable from the south end of the cemetery off Garden Street in Farmington, near where John saw it yesterday.  A wood duck was also in the River.

At noon today, a Greater White-fronted Goose was among several hundred Canada Geese congregating on the Farmington River in Farmington.  I gave somewhat imperfect directions to the site earlier today.

>From the intersection of Route 10 and Meadow Road, go approx. half a mile to a parking lot on your right with a sign reading "Larry Kolp Community Garden Plots".  From the parking lot, walk along the river until the tree belt thins out (about 1/4 mile) and scan the geese for the GWFG.  The flock was quite skittish, with many of the Canadas lifting into the air and circling around, so I can't guarantee that the exotic goose will stay put.  There were also three male Ring-necked Ducks with scores of Mallards.
