Ross' Goose, Lake Co.
- Hello Birders,
At approx. 2:00 PM Wed 2/16 I went to the flooded
rice fields by the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff (Robinson Lk.)
to scan the waterfowl. 30 Canadas were there, but no
Cackling. Two more Canadas flew in, with a smaller
white goose that turned out to be a Ross'Goose.
Also present were N. Shoveler (30+), Gadwall (20+),
Am. Wigeon (100+), numerous Mallards, plus a few N.
Pintail and Green-w.Teal. Today (Thu. 2/17) I went
there shortly before dusk (5:30), no geese present.
I think they go to roost in the Tule Lake area and use
the rice fields as their feeding/loafing grounds.
A pair each of White-t Kites, Red-sh Hawks and Am
Kestrels have been present here most times since Jan.
Also look through the sparrows in the foreground,
Lincoln's sometimes pops up. More rain in the
forecast could bring another push of waterfowl...
