Ross's Goose - Washtenaw - Tues., Mar. 29
mseft at yahoo.com
Tue Mar 29 12:53:02 EST 2005
Alex Dopp called at 12:15pm today to say that he and
Roger Wykes had relocated the Ross's Goose found
yesterday by Vince Ste-Marie at the Schneider Rd. pond
just north of Pleasant Lake Road, west of Ann Arbor in
I-94 to M-52. South on M-52 to Pleasant Lake Rd.
East on Pleasant Lake Rd. to Schneider Rd. North on
Schneider Rd. Pull off the road and check the pond on
the west side of Schneider. Fairly heavy traffic on
this dirt road, so be careful.
A scope will probably be needed to see sufficient
detail to confirm the ID. Someone should try to get a
good picture to submit to the MBRC. If confirmed, I
believe this would only be the second MBRC endorsed
record for the county.
