Greater White-fronted Goose

I came to a fork in the path this morning. To the left was home: warmth, relief for these old knees, and food! Seems like a no-brainer to me but to the right was possibility: maybe there’s an owl over there, or some other new bird I can add to my list. Obviously I went to the right, and it wasn’t thirty seconds later I heard what could only be described as a gaggle of Canada Geese sucking on helium! I pondered that possibility for a moment and came to the realization that it was a new species for me, Greater White-fronted Geese! That makes 135 species of bog birds I’ve published thus far.
