So there I was, drivin along hwy 6, just north of Hagersville, ON... Just north of town there is a few farms with a lot of pasture, where a few years ago I spotted a Raven in the summer - a neat little spot. I had the old'e cruise control set at 99kph, and while driving past I noticed some waterfowl in the field (geese)...
Hey... I think one of those geese looks a lil funny...
Maybe I'll stop...
Dang, that there's some odd lookin geese in those fields...
*raises binoculars again*
wtf is goin on out der?!
*sets up scope*
Dat der is a whole lotta GWF Gooses der!
Then I poste to Ontbirds:
Just found a group of 50+ Greater White-fronted Geese north of Hagersville, ON (Haldimand County).... East (or southeast) side of the road, directly across from house #4353 on Hwy 6. Many birds are sleeping and some are below a hill, but a rough count hit 52 birds at one point...
This ebird checklist shows the location of the birds (Under green location - click map for a google map point) - http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S22742102 Birds are a bit distant but identifiable with binoculars (scope is better!)
