At 11:30 on 3/13 all 6 White-fronted Geese were in a tight flock in a  
cornfield with many Canadas just 1/2 mile south of the Sojourn's Health Club  
field.  They were behind a dairy farm on the west side of the road.   You can 
park on the west side of the road a little S of the cornfield on a  rather 
steep upgrade and have distant views of the cornfield towards the NW from  
there.  Parts of that field are obscured by brush so you might have to get  
lucky to find them.  No sign of the Ruddy Shelduck in any of the fields I  
scanned.  An immature Bald Eagle passed by while I was there, spooking the  
geese at Sojourn's.

When I returned around 9:30, there was still no  sign of the Shelduck 
and I could only locate one of the Greater  White-Fronted Geese.  I 
was told there was a cackling goose in the  field as well, but was 
unable to locate it.
