Aleutian Cackling Goose
- While driving north from Fort Bragg about 3:45 this PM, I spotted an
'Aleutian' Cackling Goose.
It is/was on a large lawn directly across Hwy 1 from the "Green Acres"
campground sign. Jim and I came back with our scopes and could
easily see that the white chinstrap was split by a stripe of black. Also,
the white neckband was at least an inch wide completely circling the
neck. Nice steep forehead and square-headed appearance, too. The
bird was alone. Toby was just leaving to walk her dog, so she stopped
by and saw it, as well.

- 17 February 2009 Tuesday. There was a single Aleutian Cackling Goose
associating (but not too close) with 4 of the local Canada Geese on the
Mendocino Headland bluffs just south of the North-west parking area.
Time was approx. 11:15 AM.
