"Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Oregon ... November 17, 2014"
The Trip:    Nice sunny cold winter day with a chill wind blowing through. Drove out to Nestucca Bay NWR (Tillamook County, Oregon) to see the Tundra Bean Goose which showed up there ... SUCCESS !!! ... also went to Pacific City's Haystack Rock to see if we could spot the Brown Booby which has been hanging out there ... no luck there ... beautiful windy cold day however ... Most birders appear to say the Goose is a Tundra Bean Goose ... whether Tundra or Taiga, this Goose is the first ever reported in Oregon, and only the fourth ever reported in the "lower 48".
