Goose egg

It feels to me this fall has been very low on waterfowl. Maybe I’m rushing the season but we haven’t had the big flocks yet that I expect in November. I’ve seen a fair number of duck etc. species, but they move through quickly, a few Long-tailed Ducks or Black Scoters, gone the next day.

The Canada Geese aren’t coming through in thousands yet, which makes scanning for the ever-elusive Cackling Goose easier. Not that it makes one easier to find… The best I could do today was yet another runt.

Small, but lacking the ‘cuteness factor’.

Dig the synchronized Dr. Evil and Mini-Me pose:

You know it’s a slow day birding when you’re reduced to trying to turn a House Sparrow into something exciting. Give the bird its due, this is the spiffiest young Passer domesticus I’ve seen in ages.
