|Great Egret with Great Blue Heron in background|
After a stop at Wreck Pond we drove over to Silver Lake. A pair of dubious rarities has been hanging out there for a while and I wanted to see if we could stumble upon them. Soon enough we did, two EGYPTIAN GEESE, which are not really countable in NJ (though they are countable, I understand, in Florida, where they have bred), because these are most likely escapees. But they are such goofy looking birds and they are roaming free (unlike, say, the Gambel's Quail I saw among the chickens earlier this month) and someday, my rationale is, they might become countable and finally, it's my list, so here they are. I only wish I'd seen them in New Egypt.
