Ross's Goose

This rare Ross's Goose was at Hog Island Wildlife Management Area, in Surry County, during the Williamsburg Bird Club's Christmas Bird Count on Dec 20th. Even with a distant view, the small body, small, rounded, unstained head, short neck and small, triangular bill, with no "grin patch," are evident. Only the main road was open, not the side trails.
