Two for One

It is unusual to see two rarities in a day.  Saturday was one of those days.  The Johnsons from Eldorado told us of the three Snow Geese that were hanging around the water treatment ponds there.  We ran down there to check them out.  Lo and behold, not only did we see the geese, but discovered that there was only one Snow Goose.  The other two were Ross’s Geese.  Both species are rare to this area.  Here is one of the photos that I obtained while there.

The Ross’s Goose is another lifer for our list.
