Rare Bird sighting by Tom Jobe


 Hi Bob, took these photos of a Ross's Goose this morning at the lake.  He was alone with a flock of Canada Geese.  According to what I read on a birding site, its presence is a record for Schuylkill County.





A tiny white goose with black wingtips, the Ross's Goose is like a miniature version of the more abundant Snow Goose. It breeds in the central Arctic and winters primarily in central California, but it is becoming more frequent farther east.
