Ross's goose, Continental Country Club Ponds
I just took a drive out to Logan's Crossing, and then Picture Canyon this morning (highlights- several raptors on the move, and Pinyon jays/Lewis's woodpeckers at Picture Canyon). I stopped at the Country Club Ponds before heading home and found an adult Ross's goose mixed in with the Canada's at the first ponds right off the highway.

Looks like maybe a Ross's Goose to me, Brian--small round head, small bill, and I don't see the black lipstick that Snows wear. nice!

Good point Brian! I did think it didn't look quite right. Ross's would be a lifer for me. Thanks for pointing that out!!

Driving past the golf course on Country Club Rd. this morning I saw that the Ross's Goose is still present (10/22/12) and mixing with a large flock of Canada Geese across from the Flagstaff Athletic Club.

we did not find the ross' goose this morning at the country club. we did see 1 greater white-fronted goose with the canada geese. also a ferruginous hawk was nearby.
