NOTES: Weather: WIND; THIS BIRD WAS RESIDENT ON THIS PRAIRIE-LIKE POND, AND WAS USUALLY OBSERVED TO BE CRUISING ON THE POND OR GRAZING AT THE EDGE OF THE POND. THIS MORNING IT HADTAKEN FLIGHT AT ABOUT 0800 HOURS AND HAD SETTLED OUTOF SIGHT ON A NEARBY POND. WHILE I WAS WADING IN THE MARGIN OF THE 'HOME' POND TRYING TO RECORD TREE SWALLOWS AND AN EASTERN KINGBIRD, THE CANADA GOOSE APPEARED OVER THE BROW OF A HILL IN THE DIRECTION FROM WHICH IT HAD SETTLED EARLIER. IT WAS OBVIOUSLY RETURNING TO ITS 'HOME' POND AND GAVE AN ALARM CALL IN FLIGHT. IN MY HASTE TO RECORD ITS STARTLED REACTION TO MYPRESENCE, I FAILED TO TURN THE RECORDER ALL THE WAY TO THE RECORD POSITION HENCE THE HIGHLY ATTENUATED RECORDING. Sex: 1 UNKNOWN. Other Behaviors: Emit Alarm. Habitat: Grassland, Pond.
