MA - Turner's Snow Goose 11/11

Haven't had too much time for birding since the weekend but this afternoon a quick pre-appointment visit to the Turner's Falls power canal produced a Snow Goose, only the second on I've seen here this fall. Some 700 Canada Geese were present but I couldn't find anything other than the Snow Goose among them.

Yesterday morning started with a Fox Sparrow in our yard in Northfield with another two at the eastern edge of Turner's Falls airfield. Elsewhere, exciting reports of migrant Snowy Owls turning up at two widespread sites in Western Massachusetts.......I'd love to find one of those locally!
