Greater White-fronted Goose
Pete and I took a wrong turn, and before I could turn around I saw a flock of Canada Geese and SOMETHING DIFFERENT swimming in Lake Massapoag! I left the car in the middle of the road - still running, even! - and there he was! We had been back in Sharon for all of five minutes!
A very nice woman let us enter her yard to get these shots.
No one we talked to near Lake Massapoag was even slightly interested in a rare goose. One women said she couldn't care less! Too many oglers maybe?
Our family lived in Sharon for 15 years, so we are almost residents, too.
An hours drive each way, and we might have missed him if I didn't take one wrong turn!
