Ottawa Bird #247 – Barnacle Goose

Today on Mohr Road and Galetta Side Road, Richard Waters found a pair of Barnacle Geese.  They are a on the edge of the Missisippi River and can be sometimes seen from the hill about 1 km east on Mohr Road.

This is a new bird for Ottawa, a nice Sunday morning surprise.

I managed this photo, from about the other side of the river.  It is an extreme crop and focus.
