The location for the White-Fronted Goose was given as Green End Road. When I got to the intersection of Third Beach Road and Green End Road, I did not know whether to turn right or left. So I turned to the right and end up traveling into Newport and not finding any fields would geese in them, so turned around and traveled back traverse the portion of the road that we did not travel. As we were slowly driving down the road, we noticed on the right a field with geese in it. Serving the field with my binoculars, at first I did not notice anything but Canada Geese. But, suddenly a small darker goose with orange legs became visible. As it turned its face toward me, I said that is what we were looking for. So again out came the cameras and tripods and we obtained some photographs of this rare species for the area. It wasn't a life bird because when I checked my e-bird list, I had seen a Greater White-Front Goose in 2009.
