Step 1: Drive to a birding spot you haven't been before.
Step 2: Miss the turn for the parking lot you were supposed to get to.
Step 3: Turn down some random road to make a U-turn.
Step 4: Pause on the random road to scan a flock of geese.
Step 5: Make sure a pink-footed goose is the first bird you look at.
There will be some more posts about this bird later, including one on whether or not I screwed it up! I'm so glad it decided to stick around so others in MD could find it.
