Today, midday Friday, Inge & I relocated the emperor goose in Padilla
Bay. It was on the shore of one of the channel islets N of the "12
Tower" turnout (where the road turns N onto the east side of March
Point; approaching Anacortes, turn at the casino). It then spooked and
flew with a flock of Brandt and landed at one of the northern channel
islets. It was simple to spot. Look for the white head and neck.
It was a life bird for Inge but I've seen flocks on Kodiak Island, AK,
their normal southern haunt.
We later spotted a white-fronted goose amoung Canadas on the Skagit flats.
Gusting 40; interesting day.
