March 25, 2011 More Ross's Geese in Carp

Hi Ontbirders
There are now 4 adult Ross's Geese along the Carp River at Carp. Also, 6 Greater White-fronted Geese were present too. The geese were still feeding at 12:00 noon.
good birding, Bruce

From Ottawa take Hwy. 417 west to the Carp Road exit. and turn right and follow Carp Road to the village of Carp. After crossing the bridge take the first right, Rivington Str. and follow to the end.

The Ross's Goose was first recorded in the Ottawa-Gatineau District in 1995 and now has become a rare but regualr spring and fall migrant.

In general, over the past 4 decades there has been an major increase in the population of all species of geese in eastern North American.
