Media notes

More calls from the same pair of Cackling Geese, then soft calls in flight as they took off to head southwest, mostly drowned out by Canadas also taking off.

Observation details

*Uncommon but regular in winter, perhaps the same birds found by KJM yesterday morning. Frosty diminutive white-cheeked geese with tiny bills roosting in Canada flock off swan pen at west end of park. Eventually calling and bathing, then taking off with a few other birds to head SW over golf course around 9:05. Photos and recordings.
