Here’s a shot of a Greater White-fronted Goose within a flock of Canada Geese. The photo was taken Sunday, March 22, 2015, at Cove Island Park in Stamford, Conn.

It’s a reminder to look closely at flocks of Canada Geese for the stray bird. Individual Snow Geese are often found among flock of Canada Geese, too. So, when is a flock of Canada Geese not a flock of Canada Geese? When there’s something else in there, too. Look carefully.

The Greater White-fronted Goose is common in the West and Midwest, but seen only occasionally in the East.

I was alerted to this bird by the Connecticut birding list, so thanks to those who listed this bird.

Here’s a close up:
