We were driving to Rockland to go to the UPS store, and we passed this pond. Even from the road you could see the entire shore was covered with different types of geese and ducks- and you know I can’t resist pictures of birds. So we stopped, and walked around for a little while. I’ve never seen so many different types of water birds in one place! There were ducks, Canada Geese, snow geese, greylags, some that seem to be some sort of cross breed, cormorants, killdeer, seagulls, and some other small bird that I think may be some sort of sandpiper.
We did see one Canada Goose with a yellow tag on its neck. When we got home, I did a search to see who might’ve tagged it. I found some information for the CT DEP, and they requested information, so I sent them the picture, where I had seen it, etc. They replied to my email and said that number actually belonged to the MA DEP, so he forwarded it to them. The MA DEP responded, and said they had tagged the goose… at Studley’s Pond. Ha. So apparently it hasn’t gone far!
