Wild Goose Chase (here we go again)
On Friday and Sunday I took a drive through Farmingdale and stopping at Belmont Lake looking for rare geese - there had been reports by Riverhead of Ross's (hunter got it), Cackling and Pink Footed and at Hook Pond, East Hampton of Tundra Swans and Greater White Fronted Geese. I figured there was a good chance of finding some nearby but had no luck. There was a report of Greater White Fronted Geese at Belmont Lake on Saturday so the chase begins. Hopefully I'll see at least one more lifer goose this winter - same thing happened last year when I was chasing Greater White Fronted and a Barnacle - but I eventually did find them.
