Observers:
Karen & Tom Beatty
Comments:
Tom observed what he is 95% sure to be 2 GWFG at a distance of 150 yards beyond the tree line that is across the field seen from the back parking lot of the high school. They were mixed in with CAGO and walking. While looking through the scope, they turned and faced him showing the white around the beak, dark head without white cheek patch of the CAGO. Because the bill did not appear orange he was not 100% sure. Of course there is the possibility the bills were dirty from feeding as conditions went from sleet to snow. We will continue to check this area.
