The beautiful Snow Goose that has been reported gave nice views early this morning at Greenfield Park in Milwaukee. This adult Snow Goose either foraged along the grass area or swam in the water on the south end of the pond. Eating seemed to be its highest priority this morning. This was my 3rd try for this goose that had been reported, as it is not always present. Thanks to Lee for updates on this goose and a very early phone call this morning from Bruce that it was present this morning, I made a quick run for it and finally saw this beauty!
