13 Dec 2008 - Cackling Goose in East Hampton

Late this afternoon, a CACKLING GOOSE (Richardson's) was with 150 Canada Geese on the field on the north side of Further Lane, halfway between East Hampton Village and Amagansett Village (Suffolk. Co., South Fork of Long Island). A nice variety of ducks were enjoying the open water at Hook Pond in East Hampton, including 10 Common Merganser.

Earlier in the afternoon, Jorn Ake found a 1st-winter Glaucous Gull feeding on a Red-throated Loon carcass on the ocean beach near the Indian Wells beach access, and seen again nearer the Atlantic Avenue access and also an adult Lesser Black-back Gull on the beach near Napeague State Park.
