Observation details

Continuing in Westport area, presumably the same bird seen the last two days. Small white Goose with short pinkish bill and pinkish legs associated with a small flock of Canada Geese.Saw the Ross's Goose fly onto the circle with a small flock of Canada Geese at about 10:26am. They landed briefly and then flew off and landed in the west end of the marsh behind the model airplane field. I obtained record photos with my Swarovski scope and iPhone for documentation. Then the flock flew out of the marsh and onto the small grassy field just east of the gatehouses at the entrance to the park.The flock is spooked easily today so getting too close for photo's is not an option.
