IMG_8535

Remember that neck-banded Canada Goose seen at Laurel Hill last winter? (Note snow in the photo by Jill Homcy, above.)

Several folks reported the bird to USGS, and Chris Takacs finally got a report back.

The Canada Goose was from  (insert drum roll, please)…

Canada.

Unbelievable.

The next you know, we’ll learn that the American White Pelican and American Avocet currently staying at DeKorte are from America.  (Thanks, Chris!)
