Ross's Goose - Dufferin County

Today I decided to do a little local bird watching and check a few spots in the area.  After checking the Grand River near Fergus and not finding much I decided to go to Hillsburgh to see if I could find any interesting waterfowl.  On the way there, just southeast of Marsville I came across a large flock of geese and stopped to check for anything unusual.  I quickly spotted a Ross's Goose among the Canada Geese!  This is very likely the same bird that was reported from the Hillsburgh ponds in nearby Wellington County.  Dan Macneal let me know that this appears to be the first one reported on ebird within Dufferin, and checking on ebird I see that he is correct.  Neat!
