Treasure Island geese - 11/26/12

Dominik Mosur

Took a detour through Treasure Island on the way back into the City this afternoon with an eye on the goose flocks that hang out in the playing fields and lawns there.

On the ball fields between 11th and 13th Streets there were (5) GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE and a RIDGWAY'S CACKLING GOOSE (ssp. minima). On the lawn next to building "450", east of the intersection of H Ave. and 4th Street there were (4) ALEUTIAN CACKLING GEESE. The "good" geese were all flocking with the larger "naturalized" MOFFIT'S CANADA GEESE.
