Wild Geese Chase!

And what a chase it was, avoiding NYC rush hour last night after adding Tufted Duck as the sun was setting up in Bridgeport, CT., and today adding two lifers this afternoon within an hour of one another, both ABA Code 4’s, on the eastern part of Long Island, just north of Calverton.  And both were geese - Pink-footed Goose, and my nemesis bird, Barnacle Goose (photos of birds from Google Images).  Pretty cool when both your ‘gets’ are the only ones listed for all of North America for today:
