December 4, 2010 Greater White-fronted Geese in Carp

Jack Romanow found a flock of 7 Gr. White-fronted Geese along the Carp River in Carp. The geese are feeding/resting with 500+ Canada and 2 Snow Geese. He first observed at them at 11:45a.m. and they were still present at 12:25pm. Now heading up on my roof to see if I can get them for my yard list! Good Birding, Bruce

Directions: From Ottawa take Hwy. 417 to Carp Road exit.Keep right and follow towards Carp , cross March Road and watch on right for the flooded area just before bridge.

The Greater White-fronted Geese were present at dusk and at least 4 were observed today, Dec. 5th, in the same area.

The Greater White-fronted Goose is a rare but regular spring and fall migrant through eastern Ontario.

This flock of 7 ties the highest flock ever recorded in the Ottawa District. The previous record was in April 1986. Most observations are of single birds.
