Brant! - 20 Oct 2011
Belle Isle Park, Detroit shortly after 2:30 pm and headed east along Central Avenue toward the zoo. Allen had found the bird along Riverside this morning, so I kept my eyes peeled for any flocks of Canada Geese. Rain had been falling since noon and winds were now gusting, so it was going to be tough photographing the bird (if still around).
Riverside and Central (just west of Vista). The grass was flooded and the birds were foraging in the grass and swimming in the temporary lake to my left. I opened the window and took a few images w/ the D300s and 300/2.8VRII and TC1.4II.
With the rains refusing to let up, I headed for home. Many thanks to Allen, Caleb (Putnam) and Mike (Sefton) for posting updates on the bird.
