Well, I’ve finally gotten my nemesis bird! With almost no hope I went back to Longshore Country Club in Westport, even though it was pouring torrentially. We skirted the hunkered down geese flocks for a while, and were just about to move on when my dad said-“I got it!”
We immediately set up the scope, and sure enough, among all the Canadas was a beautiful adult Barnacle Goose! Wow. It was a stunning bird, but the rain was torrential and we couldn’t stay long because our lenses were getting soaked. But I got some pics, even though there pretty bad.
We Also relocated the Cackling Goose.
So, finally the wild goose chase payed off!
