Greylag Goose in CT
On Feb 22, 2009 Greg Hanisek found a wild-type Greylag Goose in Wallingford, CT. The Wallingford area farm fields and reservoirs have been a haven for Greenland geese over the years (including several Canadas banded in Greenland, several Greenland Greater White-fronted Geese, and Barnacle Goose).
Several aspects of this sighting are intriguing, hinting that we should take a close look at this bird and the possibilty that it may be a wild occurence. Here are some photos.
