Birders,



The three ROSS’S GEESE in fields along Hannegan Road, about 2 km south of Lynden, WA, were present all day yesterday, and were reportedly still there at 9:50 this morning. They spend most of their time on the west side of Hannegan Road (there are flooded fields there with many other waterfowl) but have also been seen on the east side. I was able to get some great photos yesterday.



If anyone needs Ross’s Goose for a life bird, Lynden is a lot closer than visiting their wintering grounds in California or their breeding grounds around Hudson Bay!



Also of note yesterday were 75 WHIMBRELS in Blaine, WA. They can usually be seen (except at very high tides) on the mudflats just south of the boat launch on the south side of Marine Drive, which can easily be viewed from a couple of points on Peace Portal Drive, about 4 to 6 blocks south of the border crossing. Also there yesterday were 141 CASPIAN TERNS.

Birders,



Three ROSS’S GEESE were seen and photographed yesterday afternoon by Phil Wegener from Bellingham just south of Lynden, WA. The birds were seen in fields along Hannegan Road, just south of the Nooksack River bridge, directly south of downtown Lynden. Many other birds were in the fields including 3 GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE, CINNAMON TEAL and other ducks. This is apparently a first record of Ross’s Geese for Whatcom County. I’m going to look for them right now!
