This morning I got a text with a report of an immature Ross's Goose on Good Springs Road north of Asbury in Warren County, 20 minutes from my home. I zipped over there and found the Senchers on the side of the road next to a pond covered with over 2,500 Snow Goose. The young bird had flown, but they had just seen an adult Ross's Goose. A few minutes later we relocated it on the far side of the pond. Then it disappeared in among all the Snow Geese. Five minutes later we refound it on our side of the pond. We watched it and got some photos for a few minutes, then it disappeared again. We looked for it for almost an hour without being able to relocate it. Very frustrating, since when you get a good look at it, the bird is obviously smaller and distinct--but scanning the flock, it was somehow able to hide. Anyway, here's the flock. See if you can find the bird.
Can you see the bird now?
Here it is from the center of the shot above.
