Cape Barren Geese around CHCH

Postby andrewcrossland » Mon Mar 02, 2020 11:47 pm

Just as a FYI

There are 4 free-flying Cape Barrens at Yarrs Flat, Lake Ellesmere - pic below.

1 free-flying bird at Travis wetland

1 free-flying bird at Kaiapoi Oxidation Ponds

maybe 6-10 "out-in-a-field-but owned by some guy" birds on farmland along Lower Styx Road

and I'm sure the menagerie's at Peacock Springs and Orana Park still have their (pinioned?) flocks
