Location: Lawernceburg Rd. at Powell Gravel Pit

Reporter: Jeff Rowe

There were five snow geese (three white adults, one white immature, and one dark immature) on the gravel pit lake along with about 200 Canada Geese. Among the Canadas was one goose with a white cheeks and brow. From my review of Sibley, I would call it a Barnacle x Canada Hybrid.
