Ross's Eclipse

Ross's Eclipse

Two Ross's Geese in Bolingbrook Illinois. That's a Canada shadow passing in front. Rated as "rare" for Chicagoland. Sunday evening sighting in the triangle formed by Weber Rd., Lily Cache, and Veterans Pkwy. Note: Swapped main photo with 2nd comment photo based upon your comments.This is not as unusual as the "elaenia (sp)" down the road that has North America buzzing. Depending on wether it is classified as a small-billed or white-crested, it will be either the first or second NA record for this South American bird. I will post a photo later.My stocklist
