Greater White-fronted Goose

“One of these Geese is not like the others!” …. Thanks Kiirsti, good spotting.

This goose is normally west of Ontario, breeding west of Hudson Bay and a rare sighting in NB.

Hi Peter,

Today, Colin and I spotted a Greater White-fronted Goose at Middle Island (just in the water off the eastern tip of the island, seen from the causeway).

Attached a photo, not a fantastic shot, but definitely good enough for a ID!

Hope some others might get a chance to see it. Thought I’d share with you. No Garganey mind you, but still a fun sighting 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

Kiirsti
