A surprise on the beach


A surprise on one of the local beaches last week...............


A very late White-fronted Goose. Never seen one in June before....................


 
There were a few other stragglers around: Wigeon, Tufted Duck, Scaup and Red-breasted Merganser. All presumably sick or injured birds. Or just lazy and/or disorganized.

  1. Lazy and/or disorganized? Sounds like some people I know!

  2. It is an odd sight for June. Hope it makes it through the hotter months.

  3. Odd duck and gulls linger here in summer, too. They're often sick, but some are just non-breeders lacking motivation to head north...

    1. I guess if they have food nearby why not stick around?
