Observation details

The bird was in company of Canada Geese the entire time. The flock flew in from the NE (Somerton area, but could have easily come from Montco or Bucks). Birds were feeding on what used to be part of the old golf course but is now a vacant field in the Lower Moreland housing development site. After about 20 min or so the flock took off again heading south into Philly county and then turning back NE towards Montco or Bucks (via the NE-most corner of Philly). The goose was readily identifiable by size, plumage and coloring of bill and legs.
