Ross’ Goose (Chen Rossii) Observed on Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge

Published in 1989

On 17 February 1989 Gussie Arnett and Helen Kittinger of the Birmingham Audubon Society reported to me that they had observed a Ross’ Goose (Chen rossii) feeding with a flock of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) at the Lakepoint Marina State Park. The following day Dr. Greenberg of Columbus College verified the sighting and since then I, along with many individuals from various bird groups, have observed the goose throughout Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge and adjacent areas. The sighting is only the third confirmed record for this species in Alabama.
