Virginia Lake, Reno, Washoe Co (10/9/14)
There were 2 Cackling Geese at VL this afternoon, standing together at the water's edge at the N end. First of the season & pretty much on schedule as earlyish October is normally when I first see them in Reno.
The only other birds of note were a couple of Steller's Jays in the junipers at the N end.
