Hi birders,

This afternoon I found a single GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE in with a 
few hundred Canada Geese near Long Point. The geese are feeding in a flooded 
stream/field north of the 1st  Concession (NW of Port Rowan). The previously 
reported GOLDEN EAGLE (immature) was seen once again soaring over the Turkey 
Point marshes this afternoon. There is also a dark phase Rough-legged Hawk in 
the same area.

Directions:

The GOOSE can be found by taking Hwy 59 south to the 1st Concession. Head east 
on the 1st Concession until you see the flooded area on the north side of the 
road.

The find the EAGLE at the Turkey Point marsh, either continue heading east from 
Port Rowan along the Front Road, or (via previous posting) follow Hwy 24 south 
and then west from Simcoe, then head south on Turkey Point Road (Reg. Rd 10) and 
then west on Front Road. The Turkey Point marsh roadside lookout is 
approximately 2.5km west.

Cheers,
